Maple Bourbon Bacon Jam - Another Delicious Recipe!

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.

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!

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.

    • King Arthur Flour has excellent mixes and gluten free recipes if you enjoy baking.  If you live in a city, there are bound to be bakeries and cafes that make gluten free items and some groceries stores that stock them as well.  
    • You could have the full celiac panel done to see if any other numbers come up high. TTG IGA and IGG, DGP IGA and IGG, EMA. If your doctor is not a gastroenterologist then you can try going to one. They know what to test for. You could also simplify your diet and start a food log. Gradually introduce foods and when stomach pains start you can see what you ate in the last two days to cause a problem.  
    • I had the same issue with stomach pain after diagnosis and it turned out to be soy protein that was causing it.  I never ate much soy before diagnosis and gluten was keeping me constantly ill so I never realized it was an issue till I stopped going with foods with soy on the suggestion of good freind. Not saying that is the problem with you but thought I would throw it out there as a possibility. If you are eating oats you may want to drop those for a bit also since some of us will react to those even if they are gluten free. In addition is there any way you can avoid eating oput for a month or so? You may be getting glutened but not enough to show on the TtG. I could be wrong but I think the DGP tests are the preferred ones for checking with dietary compliance. You should also consider dropping dairy for a bit. Add it back in when you are feeling better starting with stuff like hard cheeses, yogurt and butter that have low amounts of lactose. Hopefully you will be able to figure out what is going on soon and get some relief.  
    • I was diagnosed with celiac 2 years ago and since have been gluten-free. When I started my ttg was 88. I just recently visited the doc because I still seem to suffer from almost daily stomach pain. My ttg came back at 4. The doc suggested I try Metamucil and next week give lactaid a try as I still eat dairy.  The metamucil I took one day and I had such bad stomach pain and loose bowel movements I felt too miserable to try it again. I haven't tried the lactaid yet but in the past I have and didn't see much difference.  Heres the other thing: I do eat out a lot. I try to stick with safe places but every now and then I play the odds. So I usually manage to get sick once a month (lately it's been more) so I went to the doc and had my ttg level tested to see if my body is still getting gluten and this is why I still feel horrible. But my levels came back at 4, so now I'm just wondering... what the heck? I'm feeling super discouraged and doomed to a life of unexplained stomach pain.    The annoying part is all my dr did is give me the results. Like "oh you're continuing to improve." Ok, but I'm in paid so what's going on? No answers, ever. It seems like I get suggestions, but they never do anything and I'm so fed up with my body. I'm tired of waking up frequently wondering what I could have ate that is bothering me. I had no idea two years later I'd still be struggling. Lately the stomach pain has increased and it's daily now again. I've been taking pepto for it and it helps a bit, but I don't want to live life digging in my purse for pepto everyday.   any advice or suggestions from anyone who has been through this are appreciated.  I get that celiac may not be the only problem but I don't know where to go anymore as I've been searching for 2 years.      
    • I agree that this article is a scare tactic.  Looks like this child was starved to death. Note the article states the parents did not seek medical help. Millions of children and adults have food allergies and intolerance but do not have this happen. Following a medical diet is a healthy choice for quality and quantity of life. These types of articles have no value in this place of healing.
