I would love to make some bacon jam for the first time. Problem is, I'm without a food processor for now. What to do? I do have an immersion blender but can't imagine that would work that well. Also have a blender but I've never been happy with anything that need a uniform chop in a blender. Has anyone had luck without a processor?
If you have plenty of patience and you don't mind a coarser texture, you could chop it by hand. I think your regular or immersion blender would turn it into a paste.
If you put the bacon in the freezer for a little while it firms up and makes it pretty easy to chop uniformly. I lay the strips out on parchment or foil on the sheet pan and then take 2 strips out at a time, stack and chop them, get two more out, etc. That way the ones in the freezer are staying firm while you're chopping.
