Piggy Pop

September 3, 2011

Chefs Duskie Eskes and John Stewart, have taken bacon to the next level.  They have created a porky pop made with plenty of black pig bacon.  This specialty bacon is dry-cured with brown sugar before smoking.  Eskes and Stewart are known for their pork.  They were winners in this year’s Cochon555 heritage pork cook-off at Aspen Food & Wine.

The lollipop is made by mixing bits of sweet and salty bacon with caramal toffee. The mixture is set in a pig mold to harden, before the back of the pop is dipped into dark chocolate.  These decadent Piggy Pops are $4 each and available here.
