Behold, The Bacon Flower

Great news! Culinary horticulturists from Alpine, California, have  at  last  succeeded  in  producing  the elusive bacon flower. This flower can be enjoyed as a thing of rare and exquisite beauty.

Or you can fry it up. It’ll taste just like bacon, because it is part bacon. We can all thank the whiz kids of San Diego County for this breakthrough in cross-breeding/cross pollination. Yay!

    I think I am one of the few human beings on this planet who do not like bacon all that much. Is there hope for me? Must I live out the rest of my life like this?

    • I have the same problem with mushrooms. If someone offers you bacon, look at it, sigh, and “Can’t have it anymore. My heart.”
