I made the Not Quite Nigella recipe and gave it as gifts for Xmas. Great stuff, but the recipe yields only about 2 cups. I suggest adding a bit of coffee, and using really great quality bacon and hot sauce.

But the best part about bacon jam is all the uses! It's an incredibly versatile condiment to have on hand for EVERY meal. Smeared on an English muffin and topped with a fried egg, on a turkey sandwich with muenster and dijon, and of course, on a hamburger laced with blue cheese. Here's a list of all the uses we've found so far: http://gasstronomy.blogspot.com/2011/...
