And Now We Know...

Man The Harpoons!!

Every so often, there's a blogpost that just sticks in your head. Something so off the beaten path that you can't help thinking about it every now & then.

The post that rattles around my noodle concerns bacon. Specifically, whale bacon.

A couple of years ago, Elisson traveled to the Land Of The Rising Sun, and got to sample whale bacon, though he did pass on the horse sashimi.

I'd always wondered just where on the whale they carved off the slab of meat that eventually becomes whale bacon. That's a whole lot of belly, after all.

Then, I stumble upon this picture! So, if you're curious where you get whale nuggets, whale porterhouse, or even whale sweetbreads, click on the pic and find out!!
