A delicious meat flavoured jam for you to try at home!


  • 450g smoked bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp Sriracha or hot sauce

  • ½ cup coffee

  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  • Black pepper to taste

  • Extra water


  • 1.

    Fry the bacon in batches until lightly browned and beginning to crisp. Remove to paper towel-lined plate and set aside.

  • 2.

    Fry the onion and garlic in another pot with a little olive oil on a medium heat until translucent.

  • 3.

    Add the bacon to the onions and garlic. Add the rest of the ingredients and half a cup of water. Simmer for 1 hour, stirring regularly. Add water if needed.

  • 4.

    Jam is done when you can’t tell the onions from the bacon. Cool for about 15-20 minutes and then place in a food processor. Pulse for 2-3 seconds so that you leave some texture to the “jam”. Refrigerate up to two weeks.
