Ever find something in the grocery store that you can't help but recommend to others? I have two such food items.

1. Hog Jowl Bacon. I find it to be tastier than regular bacon. It has a meatier texture and is great on sandwiches or chopped up and put in a pot of beans. It also tends to be cheaper than regular bacon.

2. Ground Chickpea Flour. On a whim I bought some to make Farinata, an Italian style flatbread that is served hot out of the oven. It is very tasty and a great snack.

Super-bacon? :dr

Hmm... Italian papadams? :tu

Jowl bacon is the bomb. Much sweeter than regular bacon. Look up recipes for guanciale (unsmoked jowl bacon). Mmm...pasta amatricana. :dr

Usually cool a lot of skirt steaks and flank steaks. I was at a local butcher and he told me to try hanger steaks. Tender and lean. I recommend.

I agree on the hanger steaks...fantastic piece of meat. Tough to get though...my butcher tends to keep them for himself. Greedy bastage. :D
