I am the only one in our house who eats bacon regularly. Before what you read in the Instructable, a pound of bacon would be opened and most of it would rest on a refrigerator shelf for several weeks uncooked. After a while it developed an odor. We might cook all of it and reheat it, but it tasted like old reheated bacon. We might also put the opened package into the freezer, but then I had to thaw all of it, cook what I wanted, and freeze it again. I found a new, better way.
Needed for this are:
An unopened package of bacon (not frozen)
A knife for opening the bacon package
Plastic sandwich bags
A larger locking plastic bag
