My sister, ‘The President of Cookies” gifted me so many fun products this Christmas. She gave me a huge stocking full of food products full of bacon, chile peppers and spices. She knows what I like. Today we will try a hot pepper bacon jam made by Terrapin Ridge Farms. I am usually disappointed in so called bacon products and a quick litmus test is to read the ingredient list. I want to love this jam so against my better judgement lets read the list.
Ingredients: sugar, roasted red bell pepper puree, jalapeno peppers, vinegar, salt, bacon, honey, dehydrated pork broth, smoke flavoring, pectin, lemon juice, natural flavorings and several preserving chemicals. Just a quick note on this list. I condensed the list and lumped the chemicals all together and nothing seemed out the ordinary. What my personnel red flag was the smoke flavoring. I am not a fan of liquid smoke. Period.
