“Wow, just recently I learned about bacon jam. It is one of the most incredible things I've feasted upon in a very long time. Some of us went to a new local mini-brewery where they served bacon jam and I fell in love! I've tried a few now and this one is by far my favorite from Evil Shenanigans. Served on burgers, a panini, or just plain toast, it's over the top!”

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon pieces until they begin to crisp at the edges buy are still soft in the center. Set aside to drain. Leave one tablespoon of the drippings in the pan.
  2. Lower heat to med-low and add the onions and brown sugar. Cook until the onions are well caramelized (~20 min.). Add the garlic and spices and cook an additional five minutes.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients and the bacon back to the pan. Increase the heat to medium bringing the mixture to a boil, then reduce to low and simmer for about two hours. Check the mixture every 30 minutes. If it becomes too dry, add a few tablespoons of water. You want the final mixture to be moist and very sticky.
