Easy Bacon Jam Recipe

We love bacon around our house, but we only cook it a few times a year.  With baking season upon us, it’s time to break out the bacon and get to cookin’!  One favorite recipe around here is bacon jam.  Bacon jam is a great topping to so many dishes, which makes it the perfect addition to any recipe collection. Most often, we eat bacon jam on toast.  I also add it to a lot of dishes, especially when it has been in the fridge for about a week.  Just today, I added about 1/4 cup of bacon jam to my favorite black eyed peas and sausage recipe.

My recipe calls for just  a pinch of cayenne pepper.  If you like spicier food, you can definitely add more pepper.  To get the strong coffee that my recipe calls for, I add 1 tsp of instant coffee to leftover coffee from my husband’s morning coffee.  The bacon, maple syrup and coffee flavors in this recipe are definitely going to make it a favorite around your house!  This Bacon Jam will keep in your fridge for about 10 days.
