I bought TJ’s bacon jam a few years ago but didn’t open the jar till recently. I love the stuff, so of course they no longer carry it.
I see a product on Amazon that looks like the same jar. The brand is TBJ. Anyone know if it’s the same product, or can you recommend another brand? I am JUST looking for straightforward bacon jam, not chili or maple. TIA.
Without seeing the TJ product to compare to the Amazon it’s hard to say, however you did hit the nail on the head with the same jar. That’s generally a good sign as to who the company is that TJ’s is using as a private label. At $30lbs it’s not cheap that’s for sure, I can understand why your a bit apprehensive in just buying it as an experiment. Good luck!
(I also never knew such a thing existed, now I might order one! lol)
A little smear of it is great when making a grilled cheese, orr on a chicken sandwich.
There is also Stonewall Kitchen Maple Apple Bacon Jam, which is delicious but sweeter still, and with less bacon flavor.
I took the plunge. The ingredient list varies slightly but the label design is VERY similar, as is the flavor. Were it not for the price, I could go through a LOT of this stuff!
I would say that a slight variance in ingredients is probably part of the private label deal. Glad it worked out for you.
I too fell in love the stuff but couldn’t support my habit. So I found a bacon jam recipe at FoodWishes.com that I love. Check it out.
Its not hard to make - there are lots of recipes for it. Doesn’t keep very well although if you are a true bacon jam junkie that shouldn’t be a problem.
Since you are living close to Boston - I have seen Bacon Jam at the WF at Alewife
Thanks, but between that being at least 40 minutes away, WF prices, and mobility issues, I am better off ordering it through Amazon.
