Beautiful and the best bacon jam recipe I have tried. Loved it so much. I bottle and label the jams and hand the bacon jam out as gifts and it has made me the most popular person in our family. 😉😜 ❤️ 5.00

I only serve one condiment with my breakfast menu and it is this bacon jam. Since introducing it, not one asks for anything but bacon jam. Thanks for this great recipe. 5.00

There should only be one bacon jam recipe, and it should be this one. I do not like the one with coffee or bourbon. The sherry does the trick and the cayenne pepper is a great secret ingredient. 5.00
