Bacon jam

BJSm

…I really don’t think I need to say much more about this. I mean, it’s bacon freaking jam. It’s the bacon-wrapped date, amplified.

This doesn’t have the amazing complexity of the restaurant stuff, nor is it as ingenious as the other recipes, but it’s easy, delicious, and it’s bacon freaking jam.

The best part? It takes just 3 ingredients – all of which are staples in most Real Food kitchens.

It tastes amazing on anything, but it’s ESPECIALLY amazing on fresh fried eggs.

Ingredients
  • 5-6 strips bacon chopped
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion chopped
  • 10 dates pitted
  • 1 cup filtered water
Servings -4
Prep Time -15Min
Cook Time -30Min
Instructions
  1. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Once boiling, add the dates, remove saucepan from heat, cover, and allow dates to soak in the hot water until you get to step 4.
  2. Cook chopped bacon in a skillet over medium heat until done but NOT CRISPY. Set aside, leaving bacon grease in the pan.
  3. Cook onions in the bacon grease for approximately 10 minutes (they should be slighly brown but not burnt). When cooked, scoop the onions out and add them to the bacon.
  4. Now, mash the dates with a fork in the saucepan. (Don't pour out the water!)
  5. When dates are mashed, add the bacon and onions to the date-water mixture.
  6. Bring the mixture to a simmer and "reduce" (aka keep simmering until the water cooks away) for about 10-15 minutes. Mixture should get gooey!
  7. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Then, add mixture to a food processor and pulse several times.
  8. Put in face.
