Few things are as interesting or delicious as bacon, and in anticipation of the Bourbon and Bacon Happy Hour being held on Saturday, here are a few fun facts about bacon!
Bacon is one of the earliest processed meats in the history of the world, first being processed in 1500 BC. The first noted reference of bacon was made by a London cheesemonger in the 16th century. The origin of the word bacon is derived from the Old High German word Bacho. The phrase, "Bring home the bacon" is based on the story of a couple from Dunmow, Essex who, in 1104, impressed the Prior of Little Dunmow with their marital devotion to the point where the prior awarded them with a flitch.
