cant find this stuff anywhere.i have some ideas i want to try.has anyone seen and /or used this in cowtown
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.
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....
