Default Bacon Jam

This isn't my recipe, so I can't take credit for it. I am however tweaking it a bit to make it my own. It's currently simmering away on the stove and should be done in about an hour.

Bacon Jam
1lb bacon
1 large onion, thinly sliced
5-7 cloves of garlic, smashed
1c strong black coffee
1/4c maple syrup
1/4c apple cider vinegar
3tbsp brown sugar
2tbsp srirach (or your favorite hot sauce)
1/4tsp smoked paprika
1tsp balsamic vinegar

Cook bacon over medium heat until just about starting to crisp up. Remove, drain and cool. Drain off most of the rendered fat (save for other uses) and add the onion and garlic. Sweat over medium heat until translucent, about 10-12 minutes. While onions/garlic are cooking, cut cooled bacon into 1" pieces. When onions are ready, add bacon, coffee, maple syrup, cider vinegar, brown sugar and hot sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Continue cooking at a simmer for 3-4 hours until bacon/onions are indistinguisable from each other and has a jam like consistency. Scoop contents into a food processor and process until smooth, leaving a little bit of chunks. Cool in fridge for an 1-2 hours. Skim off fat from top, add paprika and balsamic vinegar, stir to combine.

Use for spreads on sandwiches, crackers, or eat right out of the jar.

The original recipe calls for red wine vinegar instead of the balsamic at the end. I have some really nice balsamic on hand and want to see how that works.

I prefer my candied bacon whole I think.


If you really like the flavor of bacon on toast, please do yourself a favor and make Bacon-Butter (my recipe):

In a mixer, mix three cups of heavy cream and one and a half cups of liquified (rendered) bacon fat.


Mix until it butters and seperates from the whey.

Put in pan and make bacon-butter "texas" toast.

Die happy.

Ok. Major alteration. I kept tasting it as it simmered.....it was coffee jam with a bit of bacon flavor, so I added 1 cup of cranberry/pomegranate juice and let that reduce down. Muchbetter! I think the extra summer time released some bacon flavor as well. It tamed down the coffee flavors as well.

I had that same thing too as i let it simmer. Mine took nearly 4 hours to complete reduce down. By that time the coffee flavor had subsided, blending nicely with the rest of the ingredients.

Thanks for sharing this recipe with us Bob. It looks delicious and will try out the recipe soon.

May have to "snake out" my veins afterwards though

No idea actually, as it gets eaten too quick. If I had to guess, maybe two weeks in the fridge.

I made this for Christmas gifts this year and for the doubters, it's amazing. Highly recommend trying it.
