Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
As usual, I prepare this a little differently than the recipe. I don't worry about having the bowl hot. I usually cook the bacon in the microwave, pour the water, bacon dripping and vinegar in a cup and heat it up in the microwave. You do have to watch the liquid closely in the microwave though. If it gets too bubbling or too hot it can explode. I know from experience! So you can just heat the liquid in a pan on top of the stove.
