I recently got the opportunity to try out Skillet Bacon Jam through Tomoson.com. Though I'm not a fan of bacon, my husband is, and there are certain things (like green beans or cornbread) he thinks should have a piece or two of bacon in them for seasoning. I don't mind a hint of the taste in some foods, but I don't like the strong smell of cooking bacon. So i thought this would be great to try--the flavor without cooking.
Skillet Bacon Jam is pretty much what the name says. It is a rather gelatainous, bacon-flavored condiment you could use as a spread or flavoring. It contains the flavors of bacon, onions and spices and you can smell it when you open the jar!
My husband refused to try it as a spread, but liked it when I added it to the green beans. Green beans are a staple vegetable around here, but I think I cook them a little too bland for his taste. Usually I just add a little salt and onion, but the last couple of times I added the Bacon Jam.
The first time I used it I just tried to cook the onions in the Skillet Jam. The onions seemed to soak it all up, however, and I was afraid it wouldn't be enough to add the flavor, so I still ended up adding a little extra to the green beans.
The second time, I was in more of a hurry, so I just used dehydrated onions and added about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the Skillet Jam to a can of green beans heated on the stove. Both times they turned out pretty good. I didn't taste too much of a bacon flavor--maybe I will up it to 2 teaspoons next time--but my husband liked them, and so did I.If you would like to find out more about Skillet Bacon Jam and their other products, check out their website here.
