Bacon jam is that perfect mixture of salt, sweet, and savory that can surprise people into wanting to go back for more again and again.  The unique flavor, the fun texture, and how sensationalized bacon generally make this a fun ingredient everyone should have in their kitchens. These recipes aren’t very strict, so make sure to make them your own! 

 

The following recipe is for those humans who enjoy carbs and alcohol. The genius behind food blog Oh Bite It created Tequila Shot Doughnut Holes for those of us who love Tequila and doughnuts!

 

Ouma Pottie was the queen of bacon ball recipes. She was also the queen of brandy. She poured a glass of brandy just as I like it today – straight up and on the rocks. She had a thing for a good bottle of South African Brandy. No matter the time of day, week or month, she will always have a little bit of Olof Bergh or something slightly more upmarket stashed away in the back of her wardrobe cupboard. “You never know what the day might bring”, she used to say, pouring a dash in her tumbler before missioning to the kitchen to make a batch of her famous brandy bacon balls.

 

Make your ouma proud and use this Cape Malay Pampkoenkoekies recipe to make traditional Pumpkin fritters like a legitimate South African citizen! Serve these delicious pillows of comfort with breakfast, tea or with a steaming bowl of soup.

 

Sweetened with agave nectar and spiked with tequila. Enough said. We thank brothers Frederick and Louis Rueckheim for the caramel popcorn and Mexico for the Tequila!

 

One of my favourite things in this world is popcorn. The humble movienight snack is the perfect vessel for a variety of flavours. If you’re a piña colada cocktail fan you’re going to love this treat! The pineapple and coconut flavours go so well with white chocolate popcorn.  It’s kind of dangerous how quick and simple it is to make.

 

Perfect for sharing and adding that extra bit of yumminess, this recipe include the strong taste of Hinds Spices. Served as a snack or side dish, these salt and vinegar onion rings is a win as a quick meal.

 

Red. Wine. Popcorn. Yes, you read that right!  

 

Turn your next garden party or high tea occasion into a stylish affair with the mushroom and ricotta cigars made with phyllo. Serve them with a bottle of La Motte Méthode Cap Classique for an exquisite sensory experience.

 

Bake up a batch of Halloween-themed treats for your kitty cat. Mix some pumpkin with salmon and viola! Cats love fish and salmon is great for their coats as it contains plenty of healthy fats.
