This apple bacon jam is the perfect addition to your autumn appetizers! It’s great for a charcuterie board and is paleo, AIP, and gluten-free.


  • 8 oz bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup pitted dates, chopped
  • 3/4 cup apple, finely diced (honeycrisp or fuji)
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


  1. Using a medium pot, cook the bacon over medium heat until lightly crisp. Set the bacon aside and reserve about 2-3 tbsp of bacon fat in the pot.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and saute in the bacon fat for 4-5 minutes or until lightly translucent.
  3. Add the dates and apple and stir and mash for about 5 minutes. The apple should be soft and the dates well mashed.
  4. Pour in the apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, cooked bacon, andmaple syrup, and stir. Bring to a medium-low simmer for 15 minutes, stirring often. Stir well for the last 1-2 minutes to reduce any excess moisture. Add salt or pepper to taste as needed.
  5. Serve either warm or chilled along with crackers, on a burger, etc. and store in the fridge in glass.
