If you love bacon and have been looking for a way to enjoy it without its delicious saltiness or crispy texture, Instructable user Canida has put together a thorough and unsettling tutorial on how to make a bacon alternative with jelly.
It’s not as easy as just buying and mixing up a special Christmas-flavoured box from the supermarket either. There’s actually quite a bit of work involved, including cooking and blending up real bacon and layering it into a pan with various flavour additives like maple syrup and liquid smoke. The results supposedly look and taste like the real thing. It’s just the horrible slimy cold texture of jelly you’ll have to get over. So is it really worth it?
