i would like to know how to save this like on your other websites (ie) my cookbook
Hi Rangeley, At the moment we don’t have a recipe saver built into the site, but you can easily save this page to your internet browser bookmarks. Do let us know when you end up making the bacon jam and how it comes out! Cheers.
Sounds interesting, can’t wait to try it.
I have not tried this but it sounds like it would be very sweet
Do you spread this on crackers/bread?
I have a strong aversion to coffee – won’t even eat coffee flavored ice cream. What impact tot he taste does the coffee have? Is there a substitution?
It sounds wonderful to me and hope to make it soon. Think I might try adding a little crushed red pepper flakes and maybe a little kosher salt, depending on sweetness.
Absolutely wonderful. I crave both bacon and onions. My husband says he thinks I would eat them both on ice cream. (He probably thinks that is why I wanted to make this)!
Thanks a bunch for this excellent recipe.
Heavenly, especially as this is the height of fresh tomato season!
I just tried this and I did not have any sucess. No matter how long I processed it, I couldn’t get anywhere near a “spreading” consistancy. It came out more like a chunky taffy. I liked the flavor though. It reminds me of teriyaki beef jerky.
i too have an aversion to coffee. and its flavor in anything.. has anyone tried it without the coffee? i am very tempted to try this recipe and just see. bacon and onions are too good a flavor to pass up. i have tried the chocolate recipes on the site leaving the coffee out and with a bit of adjustment as to the chocolate amounts they have come out great.
Yay-ahhhh! I see some gourmet egg-sammiches in my future!
If you don’t have a dutch oven, can you use something else?? Also, are you able to put dutch ovens on flat glass or ceramic stovetops?
this recipe sounds delicious. I can’t wait to try it. we will probably use it on burgers, etc. we love bacon and onions so this will be perfect for us. thank you for the recipe
I give this to my sons as gifts. Try it on peanut butter toast!
can’t wait to try it!!!
Question: Do you mean coffee that’s already been made in a pot or the ground coffee beans themselves??
I also add bourbon to mine!
I made this last year for Thanksgiving and everyone was asking me how to make it. It was AMAZING! I toasted up some bread and put it out with the bacon jam and some goat cheese and it was gone in no time. Bacon jam is now a Thanksgiving tradition and I can’t wait to have it again this year.
As for the coffee questions…use prepared coffee (liquid) and you won’t taste it at all. I detest coffee and I couldn’t taste it. It just ads a little extra something, but your taste buds won’t know that it’s coffee.
I, like Galen, would like to know if you mean “brewed coffee” or otherwise. Thanks!
Made this today. Really delicious. Put a layer of it with some grated cheddar and rolled it refrigerater cresent dough. Very good.
How can you preserve this longer then the suggested two weeks
Love It! Going to make this and spread it over a sliced boiled egg on a ritz cracker Bacon Jam n Egg ritz snacks Yummy! Marielle brewed Coffee.
3/4 cup of BREWED COFFEE. It’s going in with all the wet ingredients at that point in the recipe.
Sounds interesting!! Think I’ll have to try it.
I’m finishing up cooking this recipe as we speak, I’m about to process and cool it….very excited to see how it turns out.
I used Burgers’ Applewood Smoked Bacon, I cut all of the brown sugar out, upped the maple syrup slightly, and used roasted garlic puree instead of whole garlic. Total success. Can’t wait to try it out in a recipe tomorrow, but it tastes great on it’s own. Thanks for the inspiration!
This turned out great. The coffee adds depth but not actual coffee flavor. During the slow cook, do NOT cover the pot. Enjoyed it with eggs & biscuits this morning, love the idea of pairing with goat cheese!
Loved it. I added just a little Knobs Creek, maybe a jigger, and left out the shallot(only cause i did not have one). Came out wonderful.
I”ve made this several times. its’ wonderful. can you can this?

Caramelized onions can take hours to make and often turn out stringy, dry, or charred. Here's how to produce this simple but universal condiment in just 45 minutes.
