Treat your bacon right, and it will love you forever. Store bacon in the fridge in the original packet or, once opened, in an airtight, plastic container. Best to use it within 2 days of opening the package. Unopened, it may be kept for up to 1 month, but check the use by date. Unopened packaged bacon can be frozen for up to one month. To store smaller amounts, wrap two to six slices tightly in plastic wrap, then store in small freezer bags. Defrost by submerging the freezer bags in cold water for 10 minutes or use the defrost setting in the microwave.

Peter Bruhn, owner of Diner on the Square in Center City, recently devised a refreshing and healthy dish for a summertime meal. "I put a nice fresh vegetable, pasta and tuna salad on the menu," he said yesterday. "I thought the ladies would like it. " And then? "Nothing happened," he shrugged. "They want bacon. " Bacon - hot, greasy bacon? Killer bacon? In August? At Diner on the Square, Bruhn estimates, bacon sales are up 25 percent over six months ago. August, believe it or not, is historically the biggest month for bacon sales.

Coming soon to a minor-league ball game near you: Broccoli. Days after a national physicians group renewed its push to get the Phillies' triple-A affiliate, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, to include vegetables on its pork-laden stadium menu, the team has agreed to add the green stalk. But there's a catch. Bacon is involved, and, it turns out, some national publicity as well for the IronPigs' response. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a nonprofit based in Washington, asked the team Monday to go easy on the bacon and other processed meat, which the group said is unhealthy, and get some vegetables on fans' plates.

It's a beet, minus the root. Chard is a relative of the beet, but puts its energy into producing tender leaves and crunchy stalks instead of its root. Generally, any flavor that works well with spinach will partner with chard: butter, lemon, cream, garlic, shallots and vinaigrette. Try it in this easy quiche. Rainbow Chard, Bacon and Brie Quiche Makes 6 servings 1 prepared uncooked pie crust 8 ounces bacon, cut into small chunks 1 small yellow onion, diced 6 cups chopped rainbow chard (about ?

Olga's Diner, the landmark at Routes 70 and 73 in Marlton, reopened for business yesterday morning, with owner John Stavros vowing to keep serving the fare that customers have come to expect over the last 62 years. Last week, state revenue agents seized the property after the diner's owners failed to pay $37,000 in back taxes, but on Tuesday Stavros struck an agreement with the Division of Taxation to repay the debt. Olga's morning manager, Libby Karaiskou, and the 25 people she said were employed there were eager to get back to work after an unscheduled seven-day vacation.

SOUP OFTEN qualifies as health food, but sometimes greasy or creamy ingredients can ladle plenty of extra calories and fat grams into your bowl. Take Subway's cream of potato soup with bacon, for example. A cup of that soup contains 210 calories and 12 fat grams. You could have a small order of McDonald's french fries instead for just 40 more calories and one more fat gram. So when Rachel Reynolds of Wichita, Kan., asked me to slim down a recipe for bacon-jalapeno corn chowder that had 235 calories and 9.1 fat grams per cup, I aimed to show that you don't need cream or even half-and-half to create a thick and creamy soup.

Give peanut butter a pass and bank on bacon if you want to avoid getting skunked. That was one of several lessons learned this week by 74-year-old Harry Sanford, whose dogged efforts to rid his Berwyn residence of an uninvited houseguest finally succeeded yesterday. The culprit: a baby black-and-white fur ball who burrowed through a garden and under the home's vinyl siding during Sanford's two-week Shore vacation. Sanford made the discovery on Tuesday when he got home, opened his basement door, and quickly backpedaled.

WHAT IT IS - Move over apple: Scrapple is now the best-selling pie flavor at Wards Pastry Shop in Ocean City. While your dream of a perfect pie flavor may not be that whitish congealed block of something-or-other made famous by the Pennsylvania Dutch, apparently this bakery - around for 88 years and considered a Jersey Shore staple - knows a thing or two about taking such an oddity and making it, well, palatable. "I think some people hear about scrapple pie and come in and buy it for the goof . . . but they come back because they try it and it's really good," said Wards' owner and chief baker Walter Hohman, 51, who started working in the bakery when he was 12. Scrapple is traditionally a combination of pork offal - scraps and trimmings like the heart, head, liver, and bones that wouldn't be used for anything else - that is boiled down into a broth and then combined with cornmeal, flour, and spices to form a mush.

Here's a paleo variation on a longtime favorite: New England fish chowder. The folks at America's Test Kitchen pureed cooked cauliflower to stand in for the heavy cream to maintain the richness without the dairy. Bacon adds flavor as well as texture - added as a crispy garnish on top. New England Fish Chowder 4 slices bacon 1 large onion, chopped 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried 2 8-ounce bottles clam juice 2 cups water 8 ounces cauliflower florets, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 1 celery root (14 ounces)

A Doylestown man who was awaiting sentencing for child pornography continued to view and share explicit images online until he was rearrested last week, court documents show. Edward V. Bacon, 21, of Doylestown, was one of eight men charged in a statewide sweep targeting online child predators by the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office. Two weeks after he pleaded guilty to child pornography charges in Bucks County Court, state prosecutors found videos of children uploaded to an online file-sharing site and tracked them to Bacon's computer, according to the criminal complaint.
