I know, it rhymes, but don’t do it. 

I had high hopes of sending bacon jam as a Christmas gift to friends out of state. Since the only safe way to can meat products is pressure canning, I went ahead and tried it. Learn from my failure – don’t pressure can bacon jam. My pre-canned bacon jam was sweet and savory and delicious, and my post canned jam was cheewy and tough and awful. And NO under any circumstance should you water bath can – yes your jar will seal but it will not be safe to eat.
