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.

    • Mnoosh,    Can you give us a link to the article you read about the increased risk after being diagnosed and maintaining a strict gluten-free diet??       IMO,   You are over reacting to a misprint or most likely a misread article.
    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
