    Jeez ok! I modified this recipe in that I did not add the tablespoons Sriracha or the tarragon vinegar. I also put it all into the crock pot on high, no lid, for 4 hours instead of simmering on the stovetop. I used bourbon. It is pretty tasty! A few friends came over last night and we made the Red Lobster cheddar biscuits in mini sizes and then put the jam on them. Then we drank some extra bourbon.


    Ingredients:
    1 lb applewood smoked bacon
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    1 large onion, thinly sliced
    3 tablespoons light brown sugar
    1 shallot, thinly sliced
    2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    2 teaspoons smoked paprika
    1 teaspoon ancho chile powder
    ˝ teaspoon ground mustard
    ˝ teaspoon ground ginger
    ˝ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ľ cup sweet bourbon or brandy
    2/3 cup strong brewed coffee
    2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    2 tablespoons tarragon vinegar
    3 tablespoons maple syrup
    1 ˝ tablespoons Sriracha
    salt and pepper to taste

    Directions:
    1. Render bacon on medium-high for 6 to 8 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and set aside.
    2. Drain all but 1 tablespoon bacon fat from the pot, add butter and melt.
    3. Add onion, brown sugar and a pinch of salt and cook for 10 to15 minutes.
    4. Add shallot, garlic and spices and sauté for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Season with pepper.
    5. Return the bacon to the pot and stir until well combined.
    6. Pour the bourbon/brandy into the bacon mixture and cook the liquid down for about 3 to 4 minutes.
    7. Add the remaining ingredients, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 1 ˝ hours, stirring occasionally.
    8. Remove the mixture from the heat and allow to cool for 15 to 20 minutes.
    9. Skim off any fat/grease that has formed at the top and discard.
    10. Pour the mixture into a food processor and process until desired consistency is achieved.

    So people can find it without having to hunt the million replies. Stupid search feature.

    As soon as I made the George Clooney post in the Bode Miller thread, I went back and copied the recipe into a word file because I thought it would be deleted. I really need to know how to make bourbon bacon jam!

    Loves bacon jam, just loves it. Can you make this without the bourbon, though?

    Yes. There are tons of recipes on line. Couldn't find one from Sandra Lee but I figure it would go like this:

    Buy the bacon you can cook in the microwave in 30 seconds.
    Cook it
    Break into pieces
    stir into your favorite jam
    waah-laa hehehehe

    Sandra would just buy the precooked bacon.

    Actually, if you use enough bourbon no one will know.

    A jar of that and a box of crackers and I'd not be able to stop. Then I'd cry when it was all gone.

    I've made it before. It's a bit labor intensive, but so delish when done right. Great on toast or hot rolls. Or by itself.

    ^^ Is it killer spicy the way it is or can it be adjusted? I like a kick but not to the point that it hurts. I'm not a hot sauce person.

    I left the hot sauce out because I didn't want it too spicy. I wanted to taste the bacon and the bourbon. Next time I will reduce the chili powder a little too and use a little less bourbon.
