Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
This jam boasts a magical combination of sweet, salty and savoury flavours. A hint of sweetness and florality from the wine and tomato, the quintessential saltiness of bacon plus warm, earthy spices: It's an inspired mix. Try it as a rich counterpoint to creamy mac and cheese or elevate your burger or grilled cheese sandwich. Brilliant!
  • 1 lb sliced bacon, cut into 1 cm strips
  • 1 lb fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup Jackson-Triggs Sparkling Cuve Close
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tbsps powdered fruit pectin
  • 3 tbsps smoked paprika
  • 2 tsps four spice (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. When hot, add in the diced bacon and cook until very crispy. Remove the bacon and allow to cool on paper towel. Strain off all fat that remains in the pan and pour into a medium saucepot. Heat over medium heat; add in the reserved bacon fat with chopped onions and garlic. Cook until just soft (approximately 3-5 minutes). Next, add in the diced tomato, wine, vinegar, maple syrup and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil, then turn heat to low and simmer until the tomatoes begin to break down (about 10-15 minutes). Stir in the fruit pectin, smoked paprika and crisped bacon. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil while continuing to stir. Allow to boil for 1-2 minutes. To finish, season with salt, pepper and Four Spice or Allspice powder (if using).
