Sweet, spicy, rich, and meaty, bacon jam is a versatile condiment for any meal. Spread on toast, mixed into pasta, or thinned and drizzled on rice, bacon jam can add multilayered flavor to a variety of dishes. We start the bacon on the stovetop to render the fat before transferring it to the Suvie with vinegar, sugar, and red pepper flakes.
