Bacon Infused Bourbon

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 bottle (750 ml) good bourbon
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 2 oranges, for zest only
  • 2 strips bacon, cooked crisp

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Fill and preheat the SousVide Supreme to 140F/60C.
  2. Put all ingredients into a large (gallon/3.8 liter) food-grade cooking pouch and vacuum seal in a chamber vacuum sealer or use a food-grade, zip-closure cooking pouch and the Archimedes’ Principle to remove the air and seal.  (If you are using a standard cooking pouch, press as much air as possible from the pouch with your hands and seal only.  Do not attempt to seal liquids using a suction vacuum sealer.)
  3. Submerge the pouch in the water oven and cook for 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Strain the infusion into a clean bottle, stopper, and chill.  It will keep in the refrigerator for several weeks.
  5. Serve chilled.
