So… I’d say about a 90% success. The taste and heart palpitations are a bit of an issue, but that can be overcome.

Obviously, this is a trail and error process, but I’ve learnt some valuable lessons for batch 2. Namely, less caffeine and more flavouring. Maybe liquid smoke instead of molasses.

Maybe next time as well, I shall attempt to make streaky (read: American style) bacon as well as proper (read English style) bacon.
