The smoky, rich flavor of bacon can be extracted into water to create a flavorful broth. I add some peppercorns and rosemary to round out the flavors.
This broth has many uses. I like to serve it as a soup base with steamed vegetables and roasted pork pieces as garnish. I will also add agar and foam it for a bacon froth I can use as a sauce or as a topping on a Bloody Mary.
Lightly crumble the bacon and combine it with the peppercorns, rosemary, and water in a whipping siphon.
Seal the whipping siphon, charge it, and swirl for 20 to 30 seconds. Let the siphon sit for 2 minutes longer. Place a towel over the top of the siphon and vent it. Open the siphon and wait until the bubbling stops.
Strain the broth and let sit for at least 5 minutes before using.
