I first tried this at a friends holiday party a few years ago. It was so delicious that I could not stop eating it, so she sent the jar home with me! I had to learn how to make it on my own. This incredible, sweet, and bacony ‘jam’ is so delicious. It is just perfect served with gluten-free crackers and extra-strong cheese. I think it will make great gifts too, so stock up on some cute little jars and double the batch to give away to friends and loved ones! I was gifted it from a friend originally, and had to come up with my own recipe!

    1. Fry the bacon pieces in a large pan or wok until crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon, keeping all the fat in the pan.

    3. Add the cayenne pepper and paprika and stir well to combine.
    4. Deglaze the pan by adding the whiskey. Increase the heat and cook until the whiskey cooks out completely (evaporates).
    5. Repeat the process with the balsamic vinegar, scraping the bottom of the pan to deglaze. Cook stirring continuously until the balsamic vinegar cooks out completely.
    6. Stir in the maple syrup and cook until the mixture thickens completely and there is little moisture left in the pan.

    8. Delicious with strong cheese and gluten-free crackers.
