A great friend invite you over for tea and when quizzed about what's on offer the response is "bacon jam". What do you do next?
Clearly, you high-tail it over to his place to try out his concoction. Unfortunately in my haste I forgot to take my camera so there aren't any pictures. Fortunately I found this article which (as well as being very good) has some ace pictures: http://www.notquitenigella.com/2009/10/08/bacon-jam-your-wildest-dreams-come-true/
So, what can I tell you about bacon jam? Well, having read the list of ingredients and the cooking method, I was a little dubious. However, I have to admit that it was damn fine stuff. We had it with cheese and bread. (This was the only potential use I could come up with given the constraints of my mates' empty fridge. My thinking was along the lines of that anything you could do with pickle you could probably do with bacon jam and I think I was right). Incredibly smokey and it managed to pull off that amazing trick of being sweet but intensely savoury at the same time. It was undoubtedly a success.
I guess it just goes to prove the adage "bacon makes everything better". I just can't decide whether to make some myself.
