If you’re not into sweet marmalades, try this savory bacon-and-onion spread instead. Inspired by the Bloody Maria, it’s a little salty thanks to the bacon and a little sweet from the onion. Then it gets a balsamic vinegar tang, just enough salt and pepper, and a smoky-spicy kick from the tequila. If you’re feeling feisty, you can even blend a couple of tablespoons of this marmalade into tomato juice for an instant Bloody Marmalade Maria (we came up with that name all by ourselves).
Yield: One 12-ounce jar
