Bacon Jam

Bacon Jam created by Ivansocal

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.

ingredients

directions

  • 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.
  • Transfer the bacon, onion and garlic into a heavy based cast iron pot and add the rest of the ingredients except for the water.
  • Simmer for 2 hours adding 1/4 of a cup of water every 25-30 minutes or so and stirring.
  • 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, as an appetizer on crusty bread.
  • The possibilities are endless.
  • Enjoy.

    Recipe calls for " one medium brown onion, sliced". Didn't know there were "brown" onions. Should it read -- one medium onion sliced and browned ? or are you referring to yellow onions ?

    wow, the use of coffee, apple cider vinegar and brown sugar to make the bacon jam is genius. the flavor is so good and served mine as appetizers with goat cheese and arugula. so good!!
