Thanks! The Amazon jam description sounds a lot like what we made. And I saw the recipe Tim posted was tweaked a bit from the original, heating and scooping fat, rather than just scooping fat from a refrigerated state. I didn't get that part, but drained before I chilled it. I think your tweaks make sense, Kathleen.

Also, I did not refrigerate it overnight. Instead, I drained the grease after the onion, garlic, and bacon mixture had lost all liquid, then I processed it, added the remaining ingredients and also got three jars of the jam.




For those interested, I made an album of the process.

As a review, this was much more savory than sweet. The texture is like old-fashioned mincemeat. There is a hint of heat. I think it would be good rolled in croissants with a bit of creamy cheese or on a cheese cracker. It's very rich and I do not think I could eat much of it.

Dawg, how long does it last in the refrigerator? Did it freeze well?


very nice job and demonstration, kathleen, very nice! a jar of your savory bacon jam + a box of stoned wheat thins + me....

Finally got my hands on some PC Bacon Marmalade. I was a little disappointed. I was hoping for something a bit more complex. It really had no depth in flavor. All that I could taste was sugar and that simulated smokey flavor. Not much else. I tried it with old cheddar on crackers. Maybe I will use it to glaze something.
