Like most commercially produced foods, bacon jam tends to be full of additives. Since we're all about eating good food, I just had to come up with a version which tasted great but satisfied my need for really nutritious food...
- 200g smoked bacon, finely chopped
- 1 red onion, finely diced
- 2 tbsp organic tomato paste
- 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp raw organic honey
- 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/2 tsp smoky paprika
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- sea salt & freshly cracked pepper to taste
I LOVE how incredibly simple this is to make!
Cook bacon and onion together in a saucepan.
Add the remaining ingredients.
Bring to the boil, stirring frequently.
Reduce heat, and simmer gently for 10-15 min to allow the jam to thicken.
This is best served cold with vegetable crisps or grain free crackers...though I have used it as part of a stuffing for pork.....
Pork steak with bacon jam & sausage meat stuffing wrapped in bacon....I really need to post that recipe don't I?!!
