So now that I have some free time, I have come up with this new recipe!
Now I call it bacon ice tea, but it really has nothing to do with bacon, just a name! This recipe was made up after I had some ice tea at a restaurant, and it was gross! Way to sweet, and the tea tasted like it came from some pre-made powder (if that’s even possible!). It only takes a few minutes to make and its cheaper than buying it at the store!
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tbsp loose leaf earl grey tea
2 tbsp loose leaf oolong black tea
5 mint leaves torn in half
Loose leaf tea pot
3 liter juice container
Boil enough water to fill the teapot, make sure the water is boiling since black tea requires very high temperatures to steep properly.
Steep tea in the loose leaf tea pot for 8-10 minutes
Mix all the ingredients together in the juice container and chill until cooled.

I don’t have time to post all 3 recipes for the bacon ice cream, but I have enough time to do one!
I got the idea originally from Smokin bones a few weeks ago, and ever since I thought I could do better! So here is my interpretation of the bacon ice cream I had at Smokin bones.
Vanilla ice cream with bacon brittle
Good quality vanilla ice cream
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup crumbled bacon (reserve 1 tbsp for garnish)
Preparations and Cooking:
In a small pot, mix the sugar, corn syrup, and water together. On medium heat, combine the mixture until clear. Turn the heat up to medium/high and boil (do not stir!), using a candy thermometer bring the mixture up to 300 degrees F (hard crack).
immediately take the sugar mixture off the heat, Mix the baking soda, butter, vanilla, and bacon into the sugar mixture. (this might get a bit scary because it bubbles, but it’s okay!)
When the bubbles subside, pour onto a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper.
Allow to cool for 30 minutes
Break the brittle into pieces and put half of the brittle into a food processor. Blend the brittle in the food processor until it is the texture of coarse corn meal, pour the mixture into a bowl.
Scoop out a ball of ice cream and roll it in the bacon brittle until it is completely covered.
Serve with a piece of the intact bacon brittle and some crumbled bacon for garnish.
