What is Bacon Jam? It's not a jam with bacon. It's a meat spread with bacon as its main ingredient. I decided to use the bacon that's natural without preservatives like sodium nitrite which is carcinogenic.
1-1/2 lbs of bacon
1/2 sweet onion or red onion
5-6 cloves garlic, minced
1 TB light brown sugar
3/4 tsp all spice
2-4 chipotles en adobo sauce plus 3 tsps of the sauce
1-1/2 c brewed coffee
1/3 c cider vinegar
2 tsp ancho chile powder
1TB ground Mexican hot chocolate
1/4 c brandy
4 TB Maple syrup
black pepper to taste
Yields: 2-3 cups
|This is the consistency you would like to achieve in 2 hours.|
|You're now ready to serve or pack it up in a jar to store.|
|My family likes it on good toasted bread with an egg on top or melted cheese.|
You can also serve it like a tapanade for hors d' oeuvres.
