Recipe: Maple Bacon Pepper Jelly

The concept of a savory jelly was one I never really understood.  Wasn’t a jelly something that went with peanut butter?  And the biggest problem with that is I don’t like peanut butter.

But once, at a party, I tried a pepper jelly and I was intrigued.

 And then I came across this recipe and then this one.  They each had things I liked and things I didn’t.  But they were both missing one thing, in my opinion.


Specifically peppadew peppers.

So I did some tweaking, combining and came up with this yummy recipe.


- 1 lb. of bacon

- 1 onion

- 1 Tbsp. of minced garlic

- 1/2 cup of maple syrup

- 3/4 cup of brewed coffee

- 10 oz. jar of peppadew peppers (I used all but about 4 of them)


- Cook the bacon in a pan

- Remove the bacon, drain on a paper towel

- Pour off all but about 1 tsp of oil from bacon

- Saute onions till clear

- Add in garlic, syrup, coffee and peppers saute for about 10 minutes

- Remove from stove

- Crumble bacon and add to mixture

- Place all in a blender of food processor.  I chopped everything smaller but didn’t emulsify it.

- Cook in a sauce pan on simmer for about 2 hours

- Place in a jar and refrigerate

- Can be rewarmed to serve

I served it over crusty bread with a scoop of goat cheese.  And this morning, I had it with my egg – yum.
