There is a chef in Seattle who creates a wonderful, daily food menu for the street! Called Skillet Street Food, the business operates from a vintage Airstream trailer outfitted with a grill and filled with foods to top the dishes. Fried chicken, desserts, fries and a topping called Bacon Jam that makes any burger sing.
When you first see it, you think it's a black morass of unappealing glop. What it actually is: a genius mixture of ingredients that says, "Topping." It's a little less bacon and more perfection. A perfect meeting of ingredients that spoons out of its jar with ease.
Drew found it first. I then tried it plain and fell in love. The second time I tasted it was weeks later. I had it on peppered crackers sitting at my desk - trying to figure how to describe this unusual treat. After eating half a jar (not the best idea), I was still at a loss or words.
It's smooth, wet, sweet crunch is a joy. It's a topping and ingredient to complement many different proteins - especially red ones.
If you can resist, reserved use will allow a jar to last at least a meal or two - assuming you don't open it when you first get it!
