Apple & Bacon Jam

       

 

Fall’s Finest , Apples & Bacon Jam.  This recipe is a winner!! Easy appetizer, light snack, or even enjoy it for Sunday Brunch. 

My family, and sometimes my neighbors, walk through my door and head straight to the counter to see what goodies may be there. It sort of gives everyone a chance to recharge our battery. We gather in my kitchen , catch up on the days events, and this little afternoon snack for us is a perfect!!
