    Default I WANT THIS!!! NOW!!!

    Bacon Jam
    Author: Rebecca Lindamood
    Prep time: 15 mins
    Cook time: 60 mins
    Total time: 1 hour 15 mins

    Serves: 32


    Salty, meaty, chewy, sweet, savoury, smoky, bacony goodness. Bacon is crisped and made into the ultimate breakfast spread with maple syrup, onions, coffee, brown sugar and pepper.
    Ingredients

    3 pounds bacon
    4 large yellow onions, peeled and thinly sliced
    8 cloves garlic, smashed with the flat side of a knife or a pan and peeled
    1 cup cider vinegar
    1 cup packed light-brown sugar
    ½ cup pure maple syrup
    1½ cups very strong brewed black coffee
    localoffersIcon
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    Instructions

    Cut the bacon slices into one inch strips. Add the bacon to a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook the bacon, stirring frequently, until the bacon is browned. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the bacon to a paper-towel lined plate. Drain all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon drippings into a heat-proof jar with a tight-fitting lid.*
    *Save the bacon drippings in the refrigerator. That’s too much flavor to trash!
    Place the Dutch oven back over the medium-high heat and add the onions and garlic. Stir well and reduce heat to medium. Continue to cook for about 8 minutes, or until the onions are mostly translucent. Add the remaining ingredients, stir well, and drop heat again, this time to low.
    Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, and boil hard for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, stir the browned bacon into the onions and liquid.
    Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally to make sure things aren’t sticking, adding ¼ cup of water if it seems to be drying out. When the onions are meltingly soft and the liquid is thick and syrupy, remove the dutch oven from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
    Transfer the contents of the Dutch oven to the work bowl of a food processor that has been fitted with a blade. Fit the lid in place and pulse several times or until the Bacon Jam is a spreadable consistency. Scrape into a jar (or jars) or a container with a tight fitting lid. Store in the refrigerator for up to one month or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
    Can be served cold, room temperature or warmed.

    Notes
    The bacon jam could take up to 3 hours to reduce to a syrupy consistency. Just stick with it!
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Oh, my gosh! Bacon jam! Amazing! This country has gone bacon crazy! They sell bacon covered donuts at the local donut store! And we have a famous cafe in St. Louis that makes a BLT with one pound of bacon on it! How do you even put that into your mouth? And how do you survive and not have a heart attack after eating it?

    That, my friend, is a bizarre sounding recipe! Can't quite picture what it tastes like. I do looooove bacon! Let us know what you think once you make it, Sandy!

    HaHaHa

    While watching the Food Network with my kids, they had special on bacon!
    bacon milkshakes, bacon brownies, etc, etc.
    there was also a California based restaurant called "Slater's" famous for a 50/50 Burger
    It is half ground beef and half ground bacon - then grilled to perfection!
    We got out our meat grinder and made them for some friends that were visiting (they have been stationed in Saudi Arabia and bacon used to be not permitted there) who have been in bacon / pork withdrawal.
    I have to say, it was extremely tasty! Have not made them since because do not want anyone to die of a heat attack too young though!
    Happy Quilting!

    K is for Karen .....................Cremation - My last hope for a smokin' hot body.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?
