This spring our family attended the Philly Home Show and while browsing the displays, we came upon a stand by the name of The Bacon Jams. Instantly I was intrigued as I had never heard of bacon and jam together and I knew I wanted a taste of the samples they were handing out.
The Bacon Jams is a company local to the Philadelphia, PA area that specializes in spreadable bacon. I can hear some of you thinking and wondering what in the world is spreadable bacon and how do jam and bacon go together to make bacon jam. Let me tell you after one taste of this sweet, salty, bacony spread you will be hooked.
Each jar of bacon jam spreadable bacon from The Bacon Jams contains a delicious blend of bacon, brown sugar, onions, garlic, and apple cider vinegar cooked together to create the perfect tangy, savory and slightly sweet taste. Every 8 oz. jar contains a half pound of bacon giving you lots of bacon in every bite. I love how the bacon pieces in this jam are crispy and not soggy or limp.
Wondering how use The Bacon Jams spreadable bacon other than eating it straight out of the jar? Yes, I’ll admit that is one way I ate it. Really though the ways to use bacon jam are endless. Spread this jam on toast or add it to your next egg sandwich, eat it with crackers and cheese for easy hors d’oeuvres, use as burger topping, in a grilled cheese sandwich, in place of bacon in a BLT sandwich, with mashed potatoes, on steak, with veggies of any kind, in mac and cheese, add it to your loaded baked potato…the list goes on and on.

This spreadable bacon is available in All Original, Black Pepper & Honey, Red Chile & Garlic, and Chocolate Cherry. The All Original is the perfect sweet and tangy flavor for use in way imaginable. The Chile & Garlic jam packs a little heat making it the perfect addition to meats such as steak or pork. I found the Black Pepper & Honey to have a nice blend of the both pepper and honey and it was the perfect addition to my favorite Best Bacon Bean recipe. Nothing like some crunchy green beans in a tangy bacon sauce! I also used the Pepper & Honey Jam in potato salad for a yummy twist on a traditional dish.
