We love those folks over at News Channel 5’s “Talk of the Town,” and seems like they love us right back! Come to think of it, maybe it’s the food they’re after……
Puckett’s Brand Chef Keith West appeared on the show this morning to show ’em how to make BBQ Bacon Jam. Yes, you read that right: Barbecue. Bacon. Jam.
Watch the Channel video here, or find the recipe below that mouthwatering picture.
1 Lb. Bacon
1 Large Yellow Onion
2 T Minced Garlic
1/3 c Cider Vinegar
1/3 c Packed Light Brown Sugar
2 T Maple Syrup
3/4 c BBQ Sauce (for traditional Bacon Jam substitute coffee)
Pinch Black Pepper
Chop bacon into 1 inch pieces and sauté in a stock pot until crispy, remove bacon and reserve 1 Tbl bacon grease. Move to higher heat, add onions and garlic and begin to sweat. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, after 2 minutes reduce and add the bacon pieces. The mixture should be thick and syrupy. Let stand for a few minutes. Add the mixture to a processor and pulse a few times, until the jam is a spreadable consistency.
