Bacon Whiskey Jam
Makes 1 3/4 cups
12 oz. Bacon
1 large Onion, chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
¼ Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
¼ Cup Brown Sugar, firmly packed
3 Tablespoons Brewed Coffee
3 Tablespoons Jack Daniel Tennessee Whiskey
Cook the bacon over medium heat until starting to crisp. Remove and let cool and chop. Discard the bacon fat from the skillet and reserve 1 tablespoon in the skillet. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring frequently until the onions are translucent and beginning to caramelize. Add the vinegar, brown sugar, coffee and whiskey.
Bring to a boil and cook for two minutes. Add bacon, then reduce to low heat.
Let cook until the mixture has thickened and is a slight brown color. Let cool and then store in a glass jar. The jam can be refrigerated for up to one month.
Jam is delicious on crackers with softened cream cheese or on a BLT taking the place of the bacon slices
