    Lori Mama's Note:

    I saw this thing called Bacon Jam 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. I did make a slight adjustment.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 10-15

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a non stick pan, fry the bacon in batches until lightly browned and beginning to crisp.
    2. 2
      Fry the onion and garlic in the rendered bacon fat on medium heat until translucent.
    3. 3
      Transfer the bacon, onion and garlic into a heavy based cast iron pot and add the rest of the ingredients except for the water.
    4. 4
      Simmer for 2 hours adding 1/4 of a cup of water every 25-30 minutes or so and stirring.
    5. 5
      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.
    6. 6
      Serve on your favorite burger, grilled cheese, as an appetizer on crusty bread.
    7. 7
      The possibilities are endless.
    8. 8
      Enjoy.

      Awesome savory condiment! Made and then put inside a fried egg sandwich. Yummy. I could eat right out of the jar but I will not to be that bad. Could see this in a grilled cheese, or sub in for sliced bacon in a BLT... The only thing I did differently was after step 3 I put into a crockpot for 3 hours, UNCOVERED, on high just so I could do some other stuff. Thank you LoriMama. DS would love this as he thinks women should wear bacon perfume!? I read that it keeps in fridge for 4 weeks.

      I'm not sure there are enough superlatives for this yummy goodness! Tangy and kinda sweet, I'm looking for things to serve this on/with. Maybe with cream cheese, on a toasted bagel? I tried them on some pecan nut thins, smeared with cream cheese and topped with the bacon jam. Daggone, I guess I know what to give everyone for the holidays! Thanks so much for sharing this fabulous recipe, Lori Mama!
