Bourbon Bacon Jam

Flavor Profile

Rich and smokey. Tastes like a southern breakfast. We believe most things are better with a few pieces of bacon or a splash of good bourbon, so naturally, we set out to combine these two crowd favorites into a single jam. The resulting spread is sweet and smoky, finishing with a caramel bite from the bourbon. Tender onions and shallots, maple syrup, and coffee round out the recipe creating a complex jam that instantly elevates appetizers, adds depth to cheese boards, and builds a better burger. With layers of robust flavor, this artfully crafted and savory combination of spices, sweet brown sugar, onions, shallots, and real bacon is a versatile pantry essential. Perfect for making quick appetizers, sauces, or enjoying with cheese.
