Bacon Jam

I actually made this quite a while ago, shamelessly stolen from Not Quite Nigella


Let’s see if I can remember what I used:

  • 20 rashers of bacon (Smoked)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • About half a bulb of garlic, minced
  • A good heaped tablespoon of brown sugar (some might call this 2 spoons)
  • Some Chilula chipotle hot sauce (smokey tasty)
  • 1/2 a cup of maple syrup (maybe a little more, maybe more like a 1/2 mug)
  • 1 cup of coffee
  • 1/4 of a cup of cider vinegar


It’s pretty easy:

  • Fry all the bacon
  • Put the fried bacon into a pot with the onion and garlic on a medium heat, give it about 10 minutes until the onion is nice and soft
  • Add everything else to the pot and bring to a simmer
  • Leave the pot open and keep it at a low simmer for around 2 hours (You may have to add a little water if it starts to look too dry)
  • You should end up with a sticky mess, put it in a food processor and whizz to your desired consistency
  • Eat on toast, with eggs, anywhere where you might use a chutney
