We make the ultimate St Mawes Burger and finish it with our special bacon and chilli jam. We are giving away our secrets but if you fancy making your own ultimate burger, try our special recipe below for bacon and chilli jam.
200g smoked streak bacon, chopped as finely as possible
100 long red chilli, as hot as you like, seeded and finely diced
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
1 tin chopped tomatoes, drained
1tsp sweet smoked paprika
100g white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper, to season
Fry the bacon in a hot pan until it starts to colour and a lot of the fat has rendered out of it.
Drain the bacon in a sieve to get rid of most of the fat.
Return the bacon to the pan and add the chilli and red pepper. Sweat until soft, add the tomatoes, sugar and white wine vinegar and cook until thick, looking for a chutney like consistency.
Once cold, store in an airtight jar, can be kept for a week.
