   Spoon mixture into bacon-lined dish and smooth surface. Cover tightly with

   oven 2 hours. Cool 30 minutes. Top with a plate and place a heavy weight on
   plate. Cool completely, then refrigerate overnight. Turn out onto a serving
   plate. Garnish with additional peppercorns and bay leaf, if desired, and
