It can be difficult to use up a pound of bacon before it becomes rancid. Freezing is the best way to preserve it, but if frozen in the original package, it’s impossible to later remove just a few slices at a time. To solve the dilemma, roll up the bacon in tight cylinders, each with two to four slices of bacon. Place the cylinders in a zipper-lock bag and place the bag flat in the freezer. (Once the slices are frozen, the bag can be stored as you like.) When bacon is needed, simply pull out the desired number of slices and defrost.
