Pour the quart of half-and-half into the blender.
Weigh out about 120g of bacon, and add to blender.
Blend on high for 3-5 minutes, until bacon is thoroughly incorporated, then let it sit for another 15 minutes.
Blend on high again for 1 minute, then pour through your sieve into a bowl or pitcher to save until ready to use.
This bacon-infused half-and-half is your base for all of the steps to come.
