Smokey Bacon Jam is something you really need to try!  This is an old recipe of mine that has been adapted for a sugar free version that you all will love!

I can’t remember when the whole “bacon jam” thing started but I had to give it a whirl as soon as I learned of its existence.  Bacon jam, I mean what is not to love.  Sticky, smokey, bacony goodness!  Seriously soon you will be adding this to everything you are eating.  As you can see by my picture, on a burger it is a fabulous topper.

Bacon Jam Variations

Below is my my bacon jam made with come chorizo added as well.  If there is one thing I love just as equally as bacon it is chorizo.  I always find chorizo whether fresh or dried it always adds a load of extra flavour.  I have completely omitted any sweetener other than berries in this particular recipe.  You can however add any sweetener you wish.  I am sure a tbsp or 2 of the Sukrin Gold sweetener would give a lovely caramel flavour and also work to caramelise your onions.  Damn!  Now I need to try that too.

If you love this recipe then please rate below.  We all love to hear whether a recipe is worth making before we invest our time and ingredients to test it out blindly for ourselves. I guess I now need to make a batch and test out a little bit of sweetener to see what a caramel version will taste like.  Thanks for checking out this recipe. Please let me know how you go.

  1. To ramp up the flavour of this jam add 80g of diced chorizo as well for a super meaty smokey jam.
  2. The jam can be frozen.
  3. You can use regular bacon rashers in this recipe, but I find the recipe works best with a chunkier bacon consistency.

  1. This is fantastic. I did use Dijon mustard, regular bacon and blueberries as that is what I had but I seriously don’t think that was a problem. I will definitely make again, still using my substitute ingredients. I do like the idea of putting in some chorizo for the additional smoke flavour. This made 2x200gm jars (which I have water bathed) but will still store them in the fridge as they contain meat. Husband just walked in the door after work “something smells good”.
