Bacon Jam!

Open Skies

An angel appeared to me last night to inform me that the most miraculous recipe had been created. A recipe that would excite the pants off of meat-eaters everywhere, restore good levels of fat to your body and satisfy every barbell lifting, kettlebell swinging, and double-under doing palate out there. A recipe from the Crossfit God’s (or… just those two hilarious blokes over at Modern Paleo Warfare).

Behold… BACON JAM!

Ingredients1 large pack of bacon (cut up into semi-medium pieces)
One tea spoon of cacao (or cocoa powder :D)
Half a tea spoon of cinnamon
Half a tea spoon of allspice
Juice of two lemons
3-4 garlic gloves (mashed)
1 quarter of a large onion (finely chopped)
2 tea spoons of chili powder or one whole red chili
one small cup of strong coffee

Fry the bacon in a large pan until the fat starts to render.  It should still be floppy after a few minutes.  Drain off the bacon fat and leave that aside before adding everything else.  Stir it well and add back a few table spoons of bacon fat to lubricate the whole mess.  Cover and keep on a low heat for 2 hours.  You have to keep checking on it though every 10-15 minutes so the bottom of your pan doesn’t burn.

After two hours (I bet your kitchen smells like heaven by now) stick the bacon mush into a food processor and blitz until its the consistency you like.  If it dries up too quickly don’t worry – add another tea spoon of bacon fat to the mix.

As for me? I plan to smear this goodness on everything. Meat, sweet potatos, icecream… I don’t give a f-f-f-fruit salad.
