Ten-Second Takeaway

Bangalore’s first jar of bacon jam comes from Cheatz Bakery in Vinayakanagar. Move over bottles of Nutella.

In Bacon We Trust

If you are a loyal LBB follower {which you must be if you are reading this}, by now you obviously know about our passion for bacon. We will go that extra mile to get hold of some good bacon, and nothing makes us happier than seeing bacon on our plates. But when we found out recently that a city-based bakery is now bottling up these slivers of meaty, smokey goodness in the form of a gooey jam, we knew we had to get our hands on Cheatz’ jars of bacon jam.

Keep Calm And Eat Bacon

Our orders arrived promptly on the day it said it would and we couldn’t wait to open our jar. There’s a piggy on the logo and it goes oink, oink, oink, of course. We decided to get jamming {as the bottle asked us to} and opened our jar and took a spoonful to spread on our breakfast idli {sacrilege to some, but Cheatz recommends that you have the jam with idlis and even rotis}. The jam was umami, salty, buttery, with bits of bacon {thank god for the texture} and sweet too {caramelised onions and vinegar doing the trick possibly}. Thumbs up to them for not making the jam too sweet and letting the porkiness of the spread shine through. The jam went very well with our bland idlis and improved flavours immensely. Next up is some jam slathered on hot toast and as filling for mini tartlets topped with caramelised onions. Though the list of ingredients listed on the bottle mentions maple syrup, we didn’t really find any flavour of it in the jam.

Are we getting ourselves a bottle or more in the future? Yes definitely. We have already planned to give these as gifts to other bacon-loving pals and earn some brownie points from them. The future also looks bright with Cheatz planning to release different kinds of flavours of bacon jam soon.
