Bacon. I mean, it’s an amazing food, right? When I was in college, my best friend would always make me request extra bacon and then give it to her in the cafeteria. It is a testament to my love for her, that I actually let her have it.
It was only a few years ago that I discovered bacon jam. It was a terrific restaurant called Carson’s Kitchen in downtown Las Vegas, It was It’s the last restaurant opened by legendary Las Vegas chef Kerry Simon before he passed away in 2015. The place is down on Carson Street (hence the name) in an old downtown building that has been revitalized. It is unassuming and partially filled with community tables. Their bacon jam is amazing.
I had always thought of bacon jam as something I had to wait to go out to eat to have. Well, the pandemic has changed many things, and this is one of them.
