Bacon ice cream. No good can come of it.

Over at the Food section’s Daily Dish blog, the charming and otherwise sane Noelle Carter writes about adding pork to frozen dessert.

Of candied bacon ice cream, she writes: ‘The ice cream has a thick custard base sweetened with brown sugar, with just a little extra flavoring from rum or whiskey (we chose whiskey) and vanilla (you’ve also got the option of adding a little ground cinnamon for added spice). Churn the base until it’s almost frozen, then fold in some chopped fresh candied bacon and freeze. The results? Perfection.’


She’s even added it to her list of 1,001 things to do with bacon.

Normally, we in the Health section try not to interfere with our friends in the Food section and the things they do to people’s health. No one likes a killjoy. (And sometimes they share.) But ... bacon. In ice cream.

Please. Don’t.
