I've got 4 young adult men eating at my house. Bacon is a major food group. I had to make this! Awesome stuff. Made for CQ 14.
Made as written for the FF&F Best of 2014 event & touted by "sheepdoc" as a 2014 fave, this was very well-received by my DH & his brother. They walk together on Sat mornings & we trade hosting duties for a brunch after their wkly walks. There is a wide variety of sweet & mostly berry-based jams/preserves available here & many cooks "can" their own, but the savory options are my personal faves. It also appealed for its crockpot cooking method & because my DH has dietary restrictions that include nuts, raisins & certain other fruits which the recipe avoided. It just ticked all the boxes for us & my BIL even said "I would be very happy to get some of this in our Christmas food basket later this year." :-)
