postheadericon Chipolte Bacon Jam Recipe

Here's a different kind of recipe that should be quite a hit for all the bacon lovers. I found this in Saveur Magazine online.

Chipotle Bacon Jam

1 pound of bacon

4 cloves of garlic, minced

1 sliver of onion

1-4 chipotles en adobo (depending on the level of heat you can tolerate)

2 teaspoons adobo sauce (from the can)

2 teaspoons ancho chile powder

1/2 teaspoon allspice

1/2 teaspoon ground Mexican hot chocolate

1 cup of brewed coffee

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Black pepper to taste


Cook the bacon until fat is rendered, but not too crisp. Cut cooked bacon into two-inch sized pieces.

On medium heat, cook the onion and garlic in one tablespoon of rendered bacon fat in a medium-sized pot for two minutes. Add the cooked bacon, spices, apple-cider vinegar and coffee. Simmer on low for two hours, stirring occasionally. If jam starts to get dry, add water, 1/4 cup at a time.

After two hours, place bacon jam into a food processor, and puree for two or three seconds, tops. You just want to bring it together but still have some chunks.
