    • 1 pound of bacon, diced
    • 1 large onion, chopped
    • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
    • 1 pint of blackberries
    • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
    • 1/4 cup of water
    • Salt and pepper to taste


    • Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until it is crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set it aside, leaving the bacon fat in the skillet.

    • Add the chopped onion to the skillet with the bacon fat and cook over medium heat until the onion is soft and translucent.

    • Add the minced garlic to the skillet and cook for another minute, until fragrant.

    • Add the blackberries, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, and water to the skillet. Stir to combine.

    • Cook the mixture over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 30-40 minutes, or until it has thickened and the liquid has reduced.

    • Remove the skillet from the heat and let the bacon blackberry jam cool for a few minutes.

    • Transfer the bacon blackberry jam to a food processor or blender and pulse until it is smooth, but still slightly chunky.

    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    • Transfer the bacon blackberry jam to a jar or container and refrigerate until ready to use.
