If you love bacon, but have been looking for a way to enjoy it without its delicious saltiness or crispy texture, Instructable user Canida has put together a thorough, and unsettling, tutorial on how to make a bacon alternative from Jello.

It's not as easy as just buying and mixing up a special holiday-flavored box from the grocery store either. There's actually quite a bit of work involved, including cooking and blending up real bacon and layering it into a pan with various flavor additives like maple syrup and liquid smoke. The results supposedly look and taste like the real thing. It's just the horrible slimy cold texture of Jello you'll have to get over. So is it really worth it?
