Bacon Jam!

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

I’m not a huge fan of bacon — but I like it in small quantities and everyone I know LOVES bacon. So why not?

I loosely followed this recipe: Not Quite Nigella’s Bacon Jam

What I actually cooked was probably closer to this:

  • 1 lb center cut bacon
  • 1/4c maple syrup
  • 1/4c cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water (added in 1/4c increments)
  • 2 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 whole brown onion, diced
  • 1/2 grated nutmeg (half the nutmeg, grated)
  • a couple spoonfulls of brown sugar
  • a large dash of black pepper
  • a couple large dashes of tapatio
  • some amount of: cinnamon, a tiny bit of salt, ancho chili powder, chili powder

…so I apparently started writing this as a draft in March. Posting it now.

 

I should really blog more. :/
