Bacon Jam!

By request, posting the recipe for bacon jam:

- Two onions sliced thin and cooked until just starting to caramelize.
- Rendered about 1.5lbs of bacon until just starting to crisp.
- Drained fat except for a tablespoon worth then added the onions, 2 large cloves of garlic, and cooked for two mins.
- Mixed half a cup of coffee, 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar, 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup maple syrup, 1/2 tsp chili flakes. Added to onion mixture. Salt and pepper.
- Added bacon to this. Bring up to a boil, reduce to low, cook for 1.5-2 hours.

Will post more when done. Here is a teaser of it reducing.

If you are going to make this, save your pennies and buy bacon ends and pieces. Much more cost effective. If I could lock in a cheap bacon source, this would easily be a great commercial product for BigOrson's.

Recipe and pictures aren't my own, but I've made this several times (with a few tweaks) with similar results.

Fantastic on a cheeseburger or grilled cheese sammitch.
Unconventional wisdom is seldom either.

Every time you think you've become too cynical, the world finds a way to teach you that the real problem is that you haven't become cynical enough

Free speech is free speech is free speech. There is no qualifier.

If you aren't outraged, you aren't paying attention.

Sic transit whatever.
