A Jam With Bacon?

January 2, 2013

It is a good thing that I didn’t resolve to eat healthier this year. While surfing the net the other day, I came across a recipe for “Bacon Jam”.


I like bacon and I like jam, but would I like “Bacon Jam!“.

While reading through the ingredients listed, it didn’t take me long to decide that-


Yes!  I would like “Bacon Jam”.

Maple syrup, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, onions, garlic and even coffee were among the ingredients harmoniously commingled with bacon.

I couldn’t resist.  Soooooooooooooo,  I made a batch yesterday.

The recipe made 6-4 ounce jars.

For supper this evening, we made hamburgers on ciabatta rolls. We topped the burgers with crumbled blue cheese and a dollop of “Bacon Jam”.

What would have been an otherwise bland burger, this really put a gourmet spin to a tired-out burger.

I thought of endless ways to use this jam.  But, as this article states, “Slather it on burgers, clearly.  Egg sandwiches.  Grilled cheese.  Waffles.  Crostini.   Surprise us.  Surprise yourself.”

You can find the recipe and video here.  The recipe calls for cider vinegar, but the video suggests balsamic vinegar. I used the balsamic vinegar.


Thank you for visiting!
