Maple Bourbon Bacon Jam - Another Delicious Recipe!
0

18 posts in this topic

As you know, I am into condiments and sauces in a BIG way (C&S). This is another wondrous version of bacon jam that I am itching to share. Caveat - you should at least double or triple this recipe. Karen, I haven't done this in a slow cooker but I'd bet it would be wonderful!

It's practically the same as the other recipe. When that one cooks in the crockpot, you leave the lid off to evaporate out the extra liquid. So I would think you would do that here, too.

Oops - I posted the incorrect recipe. Now I'm not sure where the original one got off to. Will post when I find it. It was quite different.

I love that about recipes. You can take an idea and make changes to make it your own!

Honest disclosure...the recipe suggested the bourbon as an alternative - they were right!

Yes, I remember that about the recipe but changing up recipes still applies anyway. ^_^ There is nothing that says you have to be married to what is written on paper (except many baking recipes where exact science is necessary) so I love it when people are inspired to create variations. What do you use with your bacon jam the most?

I can't have but a taste right now....but my hubby, kids and extended family are wild for it.

On toast or waffles

served with crackers as an appetizer

I found little 4oz crock type jars that go home with guests -- if they return them they get refills

Karen did pizza -- so that will be a treat for my guys this weekend -- there is no bad time for Bacon Jam :D

I use it the same way as Ski, and I also "shared some" with friends as gifts!.

COOL way to use it: Last week, I made home fries and at the end, I threw in a heaping spoonful of bacon jam and it coated the potato wedges and oh baby, was it good.

I also put it on pizza, on meatloaf, burgers, and on the hub's turkey sandwich.

He said it tasted like a turkey club--only better.!

and now, my jar is Gone... :(

It is fabulous as a glaze for pork, too. I want to try it on duck as well. Makes awesome crostini (with cheese). I'm making a gluten free version of Welsh Rarebit for lunch and will spread the toast with a smear of bacon jam before adding the remaining ingredients. Should be wonderful!

My niece visited from France in October and gave me a small jar of onion confit. That's my new obsession!! Can't wait to make it! I used it just like I did the bacon jam.

Onion confit is very simple to make as is garlic confit. :P

Simple is as simple does; and for them that doesn't, t'aint simple :P

I watched a cooking show where she made 'confit' of a whole bunch of things, and she just put them in a pan of olive oil and 'cooked' them over exceptionally low heat - is that how you do it?

For garlic, yes. I infuse the oil with thyme, rosemary and garlic. But for onion confit first I caramelize the onions.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
