What is "pig candy"?
Basically it is a slice of thick cut bacon covered in brown sugar and cooked in the oven (about 400 degrees) until the bacon is crispy. Simple, right? I learned about pig candy several years ago on a forum (I don't remember which one).
Now it seems to be the "in" thing on the FoodNetwork. In the last week Paula Deen, Sandra Lee and Brian Boitano has made variations of it.
It was made with pure maple syrup and Sugar in the Raw, light brown sugar only, light brown sugar and chili powder, light brown mixed with white sugar, cayenne pepper and brown sugar or a mixture of the previous variations.
Is it the new in thing?
