This delicious savory easy Instant Pot Tomato Bacon Jam is made by cooking fresh tomatoes in your pressure cooker or Instant Pot. You can serve it over eggs, burgers, chicken, pork and more! I also love to serve it as an appetizer over light cream cheese or my favorite is layered with ricotta, pesto and tomato jam on top in a Ricotta Jam Jar or layered in a dish (recipe coming soon!).
In case you’re wondering about the wine, the Saxon Brown Grenache came in my wine club selection from Sovino Wine Bar in Monterey, California. Normally I would have paired it with a Barbera or Cabernet but I thought I would try the Grenache. I thought it might be a nice pairing and it was!

Tomato Bacon Jam is great for gifts!
Make a batch of this jam, put it into small canning jars ( I like the ones with the wide mouth jars) and give it away as gifts. Your friends can store them in the freezer until ready to eat.
Makes a great appetizer for football parties!
The addition of the bourbon in the Tomato Bacon Jam, makes this Bacon Jam recipe a big hit with the guys. And who really doesn’t love bacon???? Serve it with 34 Degrees Natural Crisps Crackers. You can eat 9 crackers for 1 point! That makes a total of 4 points for 9 crackers with 1 t. of Tomato Bacon Jam on them. Not bad for a very tasty appetizer!
How long can you keep Instant Pot jam?
This Instant Pot jam will keep about 2 weeks in the refrigerator and up to 6 months in the freezer. I’m sure you can also place into wide mouth jars and can it but I haven’t tried that yet.
Drain bacon on paper towels, reserve 1 T. of bacon grease.
Sauté onions in the Instant Pot using the reserved bacon grease.
Add back in bacon, tomatoes, and remaining ingredients except for the cornstarch.
Set Instant Pot valve to sealing. Press Manual and use high pressure and set to 1 minute. Really 1 minute!
After Instant Pot is done, allow to natural release for 15 minutes, then release vent.
Use an immersion blender to blend it up a bit or if you like it super chunky, then leave as is.
Make a cornstarch slurry by adding a few tablespoons of corn starch to a small glass. Add in a few tablespoons of the tomato mixture (try to get the liquid, not the chunky stuff). Mix well, then pour mixture into Instant Pot and sauté for a few minutes.
Transfer to wide mouth jars, (leave a little room at top), cool with lids off in refrigerator. Then cover and refrigerate or freeze. That’s it!
