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.
Do you rate my Bacon Jam?
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.
