Brown bacon over medium-high, stirring occasionally, until most of the fat is rendered off.

Drain the bacon and save the bacon grease for cooking other stuff.

Chop onions and cook in a tablespoon of bacon grease until they start getting translucent.

Combine all the remaining ingredients and cook on high, uncovered, until liquid is syrupy, 4-5 hours.

Recipe I used:
2.5 pounds sliced bacon, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
3 large yellow onions, diced
2 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled ( I used granulated as I was out of fresh)
3/4 cup cider vinegar
1 cup packed dark-brown sugar
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 1/2 cup brewed coffee
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
Pinch or two of red pepper flakes

I did it all in a slow cooker so not as much clean up or tending.

Think it would be great on a burger or grilled cheese. Tried it on crackers and it was super!
Next time I will use store bought bacon, I doubt it paid to use good bacon for this.

That is my favorite condiment I keep a jar in the refer. Try an aged cheddar Sour dough grilled cheese with Bacon Jam samich it will change your life.

I don't dare make it anymore but eight years ago an Aussie chef I like made it and I went thru a ton of his recipe for it.
Too darn tempting!
