An Easy-peasy recipe of Bacon Jam with no added alcohol.


  • Bacon ( I have used smoked Bacon): 500g
  • Onion: 2
  • Garlic: 10 cloves (small) / 3 Clove (big)
  • Ginger: 1" (optional)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: 1/3 Cup
  • Brown Sugar: 1/4 Cup (packed)
  • Maple Syrup: 1/3 Cup (optional)
  • Black Pepper Powder: 1 Tsp.
  • Salt: 1 Tsp.
  • Freshly Brewed Coffee: 3/4 Cup
  • Unsalted Butter: 1 Tbsp.

  2. Chop Onion and garlic roughly cut julienne strips of Ginger.
  3. Heat an iron wok and start cooking the bacon preferably in 2-3 batches. The Bacon will be cooked in own oil.
  4. Once crisp, strain the bacon from the Pan and place over tissue paper to soak the fat.
  5. Discard the fat from the Pan after keeping 2 Tbsp. of melted fat in reserve.
  6. Heat the remaining fat along with butter and start frying the onion on medium flame.
  7. Once caramelized, add chopped garlic and chopped Ginger and cook for one more minute.
  8. Now add Maple Syrup, Brown Sugar, Black Pepper Powder, Salt and freshly brewed Coffee.
  9. In between roughly chop the fried bacon and add.
  10. Start cooking in slow flame upon covering the pan with a lid till the liquid absorbed completely.
  11. It took me around 20 minutes to reach the perfect consistency of the Bacon Jam.
  12. The end result will be thick and rich, blackish red Bacon Jam.
  13. Use an airtight jar to store the Bacon Jam.
  14. It can be stored in the refrigerator for around 3-4 weeks.


If Maple syrup is not available, replace it with 2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar.
