• Bacon Jam

    I’m thinking I’m going to gain the reputation of being the girl with the weird recipes, huh? But, I’m also thinking this recipe is too good not to share! Put it on some crackers for an appetizer. Throw it on some toast for breakfast. Top some ice cream for a wild & crazy dessert. Heck, the possibilities are endless. Or, just eat it by the spoonful!

    Keeps refrigerated for 2 weeks.

    Ingredients:

    1 Package Pederson’s Uncured Cherry Smoked Bacon
    1 Red Onion, chopped
    1 Clove Chopped Garlic
    12 Oz. Frozen Cherries
    1/2 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
    1/3 Cup Vodka
    2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
    2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Apple Sauce
    1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard

    Instructions:

    1. In large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp. Transfer to paper towels to drain. (We cut the bacon into pieces prior to cooking.)
    2. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of bacon grease from the pan. Add onion & garlic. Cook until soft, stirring often, for about 2 minutes.
    3. Add cherries, vinegar, vodka, maple syrup, apple sauce, & mustard to skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer until thickened (about 10-15 minutes).
    4. Place bacon & cherry mixture in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until very finely chopped & fairly smooth.
