You may be wondering what in the world bacon jam is. I understand! When I first heard of bacon jam I was intrigued and a bit confused as well. Could it be possible that someone has captured the salty-smoky goodness of bacon and made it into a condiment? The answer is yes... a big, fat, delicious, mouth-watering YES!
I had the pleasure of sampling Skillet Bacon Spread, which is bacon jam made by the proprietors of Skillet Street Food in Seattle, who describe it this way:
"What is bacon jam? Well, we take a big bunch of really, really good bacon and render it down...add a bunch of spices, onions, etc. and let it simmer for about 6 hours, give it a quick puree, blast chill it...take a left turn, and end up in pure bacon heaven."
I only received a small sample of Skillet Bacon Spread, so I had to choose a sole method of using it. I wondered if I should add it to a grilled cheese sandwich or slather it on a burger... I considered many delicious possibilities! I finally decided to saute sliced smoked sausage in sizzling hot bacon jam, which became the base for a delicious pot of Smoked Sausage Potato Chowder. The only seasoning I used in my chowder was the bacon jam; it had a rich, savory flavor that my whole family enjoyed.
Two thumbs up for Skillet Bacon Spread!
