    I love jam. Jam makes everything just a little bit better. The same adage applies to bacon so why not combine the two? It might take some getting used to, but once you take that first bite, there’s no going back.

    Bourbon Bacon Jam is a jar of goodness every household should have around. Easy to cook, easy to eat, and easy to freeze for those days when a craving hits.

    Most bacon jam recipes require you to cook on the stove top and then transfer to a slow cooker or a food processor. I think both of these create extra, unnecessary steps.

    In my opinion, Bourbon Bacon Jam should be rustic. It should be packed with large pieces of bacon so you can not only see what you are eating but so you can get that fantastic bacon texture as well.

    If a recipe calls for something smoother, I may give it a little blend with an immersion blender. In this instance, I want my Bourbon Bacon Jam to be hearty and toothsome.

    I prefer the stovetop from start to finish as well because the liquids evaporate better. This leaves you with more of a syrup consistency which is what I want in my jams.

    Great news! After making Bourbon Bacon Jam, it will last in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks in an airtight container and also freezes well.  Don’t be afraid to double, triple or even quadruple this recipe to have some on hand year round.

    Use Bourbon Bacon Jam on Deviled Eggs, my Bacon Jam Scallops, in sweet recipes like Chocolate Bacon Jam Cookies or slathered on a grilled cheese sandwich or mile-high burger!

    Chocolate Bacon Jam Cookies are an unexpected cookie sandwich filled with a sweet bacon jam and then dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt.
