  • 1 lb DLM Uncured Applewood Smoked Bacon
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepped, seeded and minced
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup DLM Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp DLM Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
  • 4 Tbsp bourbon
  • 4 quarter-sized pieces fresh ginger, peeled
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp DLM 100% Pure Honey


Cook bacon in a sauté pan over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, reserving 2 Tbsp of the bacon fat in pan. Cut bacon into 1/2-inch-wide pieces.
Sauté shallot and jalapeno until soft, about 2 minutes, scraping brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
Return bacon to pan and add brown sugar, cider vinegar, orange juice, Bourbon, ginger, and bay leaves. Cover the pan and bring to a boil. Then, reduce the heat and let simmer gently, uncovered, until most of liquid has evaporated, 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove and discard bay leaves.
Transfer bacon mixture to a mini food processor and pulse until the bacon is finely diced but not puréed, 10 to 15 times, pausing to scrape down the side of the bowl.
Place the bacon jam in a small bowl or jar and stir in the honey and season to taste with black pepper. Serve literally on almost anything!
