I’ve tried…

Yes, I’ve tried the bacon jam…

Five & Two Foods bacon jam 1

…that my blogger-friend, Phong Hong, sent me the other day.

This was what it looked like, straight out from the fridge…

…and to give it a try, I had to go and buy a mini-baguette as we do not stock up on bread anymore these days now that my girl and the mum are on a gluten-free diet.

I sliced the bread and spread the jam on each…

…and toasted it lightly in the oven, not too generously as it was a small bottle and I would like to stretch it as far as possible.

*Drum roll* The moment of truth…

Wowwww!!! It was so very very nice it swept me off my feet. I really loved it so much. I would not say it was in any way the same but I would categorise it as something along the same line as the sambal you would get with your nasi lemak, not really sweet and not really salty either with a hint of sourish taste that made me think that there must be some asam jawa (tamarind) juice in it but no, when I looked at the ingredients…

…I think that came from the white wine vinegar used in the making.

I could detect the bits of bacon in it but only mildly with the strong but lovely taste of the sambal as a whole. Well, we had the rest with rice and it was gone in no time at all! So far, I have yet to try the other two bottles that Phong Hong sent so I cannot say anything about those…yet.

  1. Reading this at 2am is not a good idea. I love eating bread with sambal and you having your bacon jam with baguette is killing me >_<

    So those are all for you since your mrs and daughter are on gluten-free diet? They only ate it with rice?

    Wishing you and family a very Happy New Year, Arthur (just in case I get busy and don't get to hop in here on time as I have a family wedding to attend and my parents are in town).

    Thank you, and the same to you and all your loved ones.

    Yes, they ate with rice, staying off bread at the moment. Nice too but I thought it was nicer with bread.

    I still have another two bottles to try, maybe will save it for Chinese New Year. Can’t order and buy here – once gone, no more so must keep for special occasions, precious commodity. πŸ˜€

  2. I believe PH would be very happy to know that you love it so much. Good that you took a photo of the label with the list of ingredients and put it here to show us. Can’t wait to read your review of the other two bottles. Sourish if not too spicy then I will like.

    Yes, I did post the photo on Facebook. Nope, not too spicy – perhaps I can add my own to the other two since I like it super hot.

  3. I have never seen this product before! But I am so glad you liked it, and it looks like a very nice gift! πŸ™‚

    I don’t think it is available in the shops, not even here. Looks like one of those home-based online business. You order and they deliver to you.

  4. Maybe PH will send you again knowing that you love it very much, hehe…

    No lah! I am very sure it is very expensive and I’ve tried it already, so enough lah, no need for any more.

    Anything nice in Singapore that you think I should try? Perhaps you would like to send some over to me? You have my mailing address, I think. If I remember correctly, I did get a card from you or something once. No, not even a card from you this year…unfortunately. Sobssss!!!!!

  5. Just in case i did not blog hop during weekend, Happy New Year 2017 to you and your family….

    Thank you, same to you and your family. Gee!!! There’s still another day tomorrow and New Year is the day after tomorrow. Everyone’s in such a hurry to extend their New Year greetings. You’re going to be so very busy kah?

  6. That is a nice way to eat the bacon jam.

    Happy New Year to you and family! May 2017 gives you abundance of joy, love, prosperity and good health.

    Since it is a jam, I was thinking that it must go with bread or crackers. I expected it to be sweet like jam but no, it wasn’t, good with rice too.

    Thanks and the same to you and yours. Cheers!!!

  7. Bacon jam has now reached the shores of Sibu. There are recipes re bacon jam, maple bacon to bacon dipped in white chocolate on the Internet for the bacon fix and if you are so inclined.

    Happy New Year to you and your family.

    Thank you, and the same to you and yours.

    No, thanks. Bacon is so expensive here, I would not want to bother making my own. At least I’ve tried one once, that is good enough…and not just read about it and look and drool.

    1. Drooling is easy on the wallet and calorie free😝. Homemade bacon is an option if you are so inclined.

      Never mind. I was just wondering – we have lots of pork here, how come nobody makes ham and bacon for sale? There are local made sausages, nice ones – not the factory made frozen stuff…but no, they are not cheap either. 😦

  8. What you whip out with the bacon jam looks really nice.

    Happy New Year 2017 & a toast of good health & abundant blessings to you & your loved ones.

    Tasted really good!

    Thanks for your New Year wish and wishing the same to you and your family as well. Cheers!!!

  9. I am so happy that you love the bacon jam πŸ™‚ I had been thinking a long time what to give you since you have received fabulous goodies from far and wide. So when this bacon jam came along, ah!, I knew it was a befitting gift for you πŸ™‚ And I wish you and your family a very Happy and Healthy (oopss…less bacon) New Year 2017, Mr Arthur Wee!

    LOL!!! No worries! If not for your kind and generous bacon treat, I would not be having any (Oops!!!) – I would buy for my girl to enjoy for breakfast, simple bacon and egg – she enjoys that but at those prices, I would go without. I have yet to try the other two bottles, saving them for some special occasion – not anything anybody here can get all that easily, so they are really very very special.

    Thanks for the Season’s Greetings and the same to you and your loved ones too. Cheers!!!
