I haven't tried it yet. I have so many condiments in the fridge, I'm trying to use some up before adding yet another jar.

After saying I was going to do it, I finally did it and made this jam. I used the ingredients listed in the recipe with few changes to the process. Since I was using country bacon and am not a huge fan of salt, I blanched the smoked-hickory country bacon for a moment to remove some of the salt.



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?

Nice job, Kathleen!

I have a partial jar in the fridge, 1 in the freezer, and took one to Mexico, which had been frozen. My friends loved it with cheese, mustard,and crackers. We had it on an otherwise lackluster Walmart sub, and it was very good. Good on eggs too. I still want to try some on a cheeseburger. You're right, it's very rich.

I just looked at Amazon, they have a 7oz. jar on sale for $19.99!

I got frustrated tying to find the recipe for Bacon Jam in the thread. Never did find it.

I did find this one on the web. Is it close to what you guys are all making?

$19 bucks?! Wow. It took time to make, but was pretty easy. A bit on a cheeseburger would be good too, I think. Thanks for the kudos. You were my inspiration!

Thanks Dawgluver. Where are you finding a "condiments" area? I see it in none of the menu choices.
