Recipe by Chef John
"This takes some time to make, and there is expert-level stirring involved, but what a small price when you consider the final results. Whether you do this for your Super Bowl® party or another festive occasion, I hope you give this amazing bacon jam a try soon."

this guy is a master. made it for promotion party. I remember how good it was don't remember who got promoted.
This is similar to my recipe except I use only the bacon grease to cook everything in and I pre-cut my Apple Wood smoked bacon before I fry it. I use Apple juice and apple cider vinegar instead of the Balsamic vinegar and I use Sherry wine instead of sherry vinegar. And I just put the whole Thyme stems with leaves on in and then all I have to do is take out the stems when finished cooking. Saves time.
This is going on my to-do list, but I just have to say how much I enjoy Chef John's videos! He is my favorite food entertainment! Keep it rockin' Chef John! This recipe looks YUMMY!!!!
This is wonderful! Thanks Chef John. I wouldn't even consider changing anything about this recipe.
I won first place at the bacon competition at the fair so that makes it a 5 star recipe in my book!
Made it just like recipe called for. Took it to work with baguette rounds. Disappeared in minutes!
I have not yet tried this recipe but it is bacon! To fuzz13 I would suggest a bacon jam omelet or maybe on a baked potato. Will be making soon.
I tried this the first time and doubled the recipe to 3 pounds of bacon. I ended up with 2 1/2 pints. I gave most of it away but savored what I kept for myself because this stuff is pure gold! Fantastic recipe!!
