Turkey Bacon Jam
So, over the weekend I made turkey bacon jam. I’m sure you’re saying Wha? Bacon jam? Turkey bacon? Yes, friends, I said turkey bacon jam.
It’s savory and it’s sweet. It’s heavenly on toast. It’s pure brilliance.
I am trying to limit my family’s pork bacon consumption, so I used turkey bacon. The thing about turkey bacon is that you have to cook it a little longer to get that crisp texture. It’s healthier though, so I don’t mind the extra work.
The turkey bacon version took about two hours total to cook, I did have to add about a 1/2 cup of water during the cooking process. It blended up beautifully.
This recipe smells AWESOME. It tastes AWESOME.
The entire family enjoyed it.
Here is the ingredient list from Martha Stewart’s Website with a few of the adaptions I made listed in BOLD. These ingredients are for a single batch.
- 1 1/2 pounds sliced turkey bacon or pork bacon or beef bacon
- 1 large or 2 medium yellow onions, diced
- 3 TBSP minced garlic or 3 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
