For our delicious bacon jam, we first sear the bacon before we caramelize the onions. Then we simmer everything together with coffee so that a thick, jam-like consistency is created. Yes, you read that right: there is coffee! It gives the jam that familiar certain something. And breakfast without coffee is unthinkable for most anyway, so why not stir it into our jam right away? It would kill two birds with one stone. whoop whoop!
In addition to Bacon Jam, we have many other delicious spreads in our spread collection that you can spoon onto bread, uh, spread. So treat yourself to the following:
Transfer your bacon jam to a clean jar to enjoy in the fridge for up to a week. In her guide, Franzi tells you why sterilized jars are essential for homemade jams and how best to achieve this. Enjoy imitating it!
Spicy Bacon Jam: For those who want a sweet and salty breakfast
Spicy bacon, aromatic coffee and caramelized onions: our Bacon Jam is worth rolling out of bed in the morning.
Peel and dice the onion. Cut the bacon into strips. Fry in a grease-free, non-stick pan until cooked. It should not be completely crispy. Then set aside in a bowl.
Remove all but 1 tablespoon of excess fat. Saute the onions over medium heat for 8-10 minutes in the same pan, then over low heat. Add the brown sugar and caramelize the onions for about 20 minutes.
Add bacon, coffee, water, increase to medium heat and bring to a simmer. Stir every 5 minutes for a total of 30 minutes. Remove from the stove and stir in the vinegar. If necessary, season with salt and pepper. Enjoy either fresh or let cool and transfer to a clean container for the fridge. Finished!
