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.

    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
    • Thanks for replying. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, I guess my diet now means I am a vegan but not by choice. Blood tests have picked up a lack of protein and I have seen a dietician who said she couldn't help me and referred me to a specialist who deals with IBS, which I don't understand as I don't have that.   I don't know my blood glucose levels but I think I will find out. I know Hashimoto's and type 1 diabetes is common in Celiac's, I asked my doctor for a thyroid antibodies test but he refused but I'll ask for the type 1 diabetes antibodies test. Thanks again.
    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?
