Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
I made bacon for the February Charcutepalooza challenge and used it in a couple of recipes: stuffed popovers and homemade Cracker Jacks.
Bacon Jam with Bourbon and Maple Syrup.This recipe is from evilShenanigans.com. It's so sinfully yummy.
Making bacon, pancetta, & salt pork.
Savoury, sweet, smoky, and spectacular. This unique mahogany-colored preserve is the best of bacon. Bacon already equals win but in this form, it equals WORLD DOMINATION! Bacon, onions, maple syrup, coffee and pepper meld into something magical.
The only thing missing is the vanilla ice cream! This jam is simply DIVINE with the subtle cinnamon and brown sugar flavors and the perfectly ripened bananas.
