Stu Helm on Barleycorn Bacon Jam: “Bacon. Jam. I was…expecting something too sweet or too weird for me to really enjoy. F*****g opposite. It was just sweet and weird enough to be the best new thing I’ve had in my mouth since I first tasted Sunny Point’s Shrimp ‘n’ Grits. Holy s**t, People. Bacon Jam. It is my new best friend.” -Stu Helm, Reviews The Barleycorn on Ashvegas
