I posted here, wondering about the new "JD's Bacon Salt" product. J and I found it at the grocery store, it was $4 (expensive for a seasoning salt, but cheap if I could use it to salt my beans and do without meat!)
We used it the next morning on hash browns, and I tried to use a heavy hand to really let the bacon flavor come through. Nothing. Not a smoky whiff. I tried a "plain" taste test- it didn't even seem to have a taste, but the fumes (msg?) DID burn my nose.
