  Notes: From Orange County Registar
  Advance preparation: Corn bread can be prepared 12 hours in advance.
  Place rounds in a single layer on a baking sheet. Cover with aluminum
  foil or plastic wrap. Store at room temperature. Reheat in a
  350-degree oven for about 8 minutes. Jam can be prepared 3 days in
  advance and stored, airtight, in the refrigerator. Serve at room
  Cook's note: Jalapenos vary in their degree of hotness. Make the jam
  and taste it. If necessary, increase the amount of chilies to suit
  your taste. I have used as much as 2 tablespoons of minced jalapenos.
  When working with fresh chilies, wash hands and work surface
  thoroughly upon completion. Do NOT touch your face or eyes.
  Preliminaries: Fifteen minutes before baking corn bread, preheat oven
      400    degrees.
  1. Prepare the corn bread: In a food processor fitted with the metal
  blade, process cornmeal, flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder,
  caraway seeds and salt until blended, about 20 seconds. Add cold
  butter and pulse until mixture resembles course meal. Add 2
  tablespoons room temperature butter or bacon drippings and pulse
  until just blended. Transfer mixture to a large bowl.
  2. Place empty 9-by-13-inch baking pan in oven.
  3. In a small bowl, combine egg yolks and buttermilk. Pour into
  cornmeal mix ture and stir to blend. In a separate bowl, beat egg
  whites with 1 tablespoon sugar until stiff and glossy. Fold into
  cornmeal mixture in 2 additions.
  4. Remove baking pan from oven and brush with 1 tablespoon melted
  butter or bacon drippings. Pour batter into pan and bake in preheated
  oven for about 14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in middle
  comes out clean.
  5. Transfer to a wire rack and cool slightly. Loosen edges with a
  sharp knife and invert on cutting board. Using a 1 1/2-inch round
  cookie cutter, cut corn bread into rounds.
  6. Prepare the jam: In a small skillet cook bacon over medium heat
  until crisp. Drain on paper towel, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings.
  7. Combine dried apricots and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to
  boil; boil until water evaporates, about 8 minutes. Add jam and 1
  tablespoon drippings. Cook, stirring frequently, unti jam dissolves.
  Add bacon and jalapenos. Cool to room temperature.
  Presentation: Top each corn bread round with a dollop of jam. Garnish
  with fresh chives and arrange on platter.
