Bacon Jam

Bacon Jam – Wickedly Delicious!

Bacon Jam is incredible, salty, sweet, decadent, wicked, sinful… I’m not sure there are enough superlatives for this yummy goodness!

I saw this dish being served on one of the episodes of Eat St. on Food Network. So off I went in search of a recipe and found this one by Not Quite Nigella.

It has been adjusted slightly.

Calories: 165 kcal
Ingredients
  • 1 lb smoked bacon sliced into small pieces (or use regular bacon and liquid smoke)
  • 4 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 medium brown onion sliced
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Tabasco sauce according to taste and optional
  • 1 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • black pepper
  • extra water
Instructions
  1. In a non stick pan, fry the bacon in batches until lightly browned and beginning to crisp. Fry the onion and garlic in the rendered bacon fat on medium heat until translucent.
  2. Transfer the bacon, onion and garlic into a heavy based cast iron pot and add the rest of the ingredients except for the water.
  3. Simmer for 2 hours adding 1/4 of a cup of water every 25-30 minutes or so and stirring.
  4. When ready, cool for about 15-20 minutes and then place in a food processor. Pulse for 2-3 seconds so that you leave some texture to the “jam” or of course you could keep whizzing and make it a smoother and more paste like.

Serve on your favorite burger, grilled cheese or as an appetizer on crusty bread.

The possibilities are endless.

Enjoy!
