As excerpted from "De Re Coquinaria" by Apicius - the oldest cookbook known to man, and over 2000 years old.
8 thick slices Bacon, very little fat
1/2 cup Water
1/2 teaspoon Dill
In a frying pan, barely cover the bacon with water. Season with dill. Fry the bacon, but do NOT allow to crisp. If desired, serve with a sprinkling of olive oil and salt to taste.
