This cool video explains the science behind our bacon obsession. It also makes us want to eat more bacon

No matter which way you slice it, we just can't get enough bacon. (Although we know that, as with all good things, we need to eat it in moderation).


In fact, bacon is so high on our priority list at Homemade that we pretty much stopped what we were doing to watch this video from AsapSCIENCE. It's got all the bacon trivia you need, plus it explains the chemistry behind that amazing sizzle.


Some of the best bits? Did you know that 43% of Canadians would choose bacon over sex; that bacon was included in the first meal ever consumed on the moon by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin; and British bacon comes from the shoulder? No, neither did we.


Also – and we're not quite sure what to make of this information – bacon condoms exist.


We'll stick to just frying bacon for now. In fact, how tasty does this recipe for fajita and bacon burgers sound?
