    Not sure if you're interested, but it's fairly easy to make on your own....

    Cook your favourite bacon (finely diced) until almost crisp.
    Pour off as much fat as you'd like
    Ad thinly sliced onions and sauté at low temp until dark brown and very caramelized
    Add a little apple cider vinegar to deglaze
    Add some water or stock
    Add sweet component(s) of your choosing--brown sugar/molasses/ maple syrup
    Add piquant component(s) of your choosing--mustard/hot sauce/hot chilis
    Add umame component(s) you like---Worcester/tamari/ magi seasoning
    If you'd like it smoother you could use an immersion blender at this point
    Simmer for 15-30 minutes until all the flavours are combined and you reach desired thickness.


    I feel like recipes are discouraged on this board so I hope this bacon jam guideline is OK. Great condiment for a burger party or any number of things I'd have to assume....

      I saw it in the Huntington Superstore yesterday. I've tried it and if you weren't told that there was bacon in it you wouldn't know. You can taste the slight hint of bacon at the end.

        Superstore has it under the PC black label.

        I haven't tried it though.

          In case you were still looking ...
          I was flipping through an issue of City Palate - Jan/Feb 2013 - and noticed a blurb for Bacon Jam.
          It said it was available at Janice Beaton.

            PS. one of the easiest things to make...and much better than in the jar.

              The bacon marmalade in the superstore must be different from the bacon jam in your link. The superstore one is an actual marmalade with orange peel and juice in it.

              Have you checked in Superstore already?
              They have it on their website but there is no way to tell if a particular store carries it.
