Recipe of the Week - Bacon Onion Jam
Posted on February 20, 2019 | Recipe
This bacon onion jam recipe from The Leek and The Carrot features 2 mainstays of our indoor markets: bacon and onions! This jam is perfect for burgers, sandwiches, and anything else you think could you some salty, sweet, caramelized goodness.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 pieces thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 2 red onions, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
Heat a large saute pan or skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil, allow to warm and add bacon. Cook for 5 minutes until it has begun to render it’s fat, but has not browned. Add sliced onions, salt and a good amount of pepper. Cook for 15 minutes until onions have released their liquid and begun to soften. You will need to watch them and stir at least every couple minutes. Add balsamic, honey and brown sugar. Reduce heat to low and continue to cook for 15 minutes, again, stirring every couple minutes. Add water and cook until reduced.
Serve on a burger (pretzel roll required). On pizza. On a very fancy BLT. Try to resist eating it straight out of the pan with a fork.
