    This recipe was a great way to use my trimmings from home-made bacon. My bacon was about 3/4 inch dice, but has less fat than store bacon. I followed the recipe but added 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes, process to the texture desired. Will certainly be making this again.

      I used some scraps from my homemade bacon too, I love the idea of adding chili flakes. I would think Bourbon would be great in this. As a matter of fact, I’m going to “Brine” my pork belly in Bourbon before I cure and smoke it for bacon.

      Love the idea of adding some ‘heat’... do you think I could sub Bourbon for the coffee?

    For canning I would suggest using a pressure cooker since there is (low acid) meat (bacon) in the recipe. Even with the addition of vinegar I would be cautious.

    Anyone ever heard of Bacon Mamma Jamma? I was going to order their original bacon jam and wasnt sure if anyone here has tried their bacon jam. I tried to make mine but I think I missed a few steps :) My bacon jam (if i can even call it that) was a mess. So I decided to go ahead save myself the headache and buy one :)

    Great on pizza with a combination of blue and cheddar cheeses!

    This stuff is incredible. It's great as a pizza base, with a puff pastry crust. My son eats it out of the jar! I add jalapenos to it in order to cut the sweetness somewhat. It gives it a lovely finish. This is absolutely one of my favourite recipes. A definite mainstay. Although it will keep for 4 weeks, I make a triple batch every time (12 hours in the slow cooker) and it never lasts more than a fortnight at most. Well done Martha!!!

      Do you cook a triple batch for 12hrs on high or low?

    i don't like the taste of coffee. Does anyone have a suggestion for a substitute for the coffee?

      I was wanting to make this as a gift, but the recipient can't have coffee or tea. I'd love to make it. Did you end up making this and substituting coffee with something else?

    to kansasgirl1, you said you dont like coffee and you wanted an idea of what to substitute, i would use a strong orange peko tea. brew it yourself and just doulbe up on the amount of bags you would normally use. hope that helps

    This sounds really great but what would be a good sub for the coffee?
