Baconhenge, Site of your Seasonal Celebration

This one’s a little messier than usual (especially if you add syrup), but it has made a play for the big time as few foodhenges have, even getting some attention on National Public Radio in the States, an interview (with the builder, not the henge) which you can hear at this link.

We are pleased with Carin Huber at the AntiCraft for beginning her Baconhenge page with this sentence: “Technically, a henge is actually an oval or circular earthwork, with a surrounding bank built up of the earth excavated from a ditch inside the bank.” She also uses words like trilithon and lintel, although technically there do not appear to be any trilithons in this model.

Carin says: “Let Baconhenge be the site of your seasonal celebration! Let bacon stand in for the sacrificed Year King, French toast for the Grain Goddess, the eggs in the frittata for the Cosmic Egg, and the vegetables for the bountiful Earth on which we live.” Lining it up with the sunrise is optional.

Score: Well, the recipe says it feeds 6 druids, so let’s go with that. We’re always glad to see interesting variations on the henging art!
