  • Slow-Cooker Bacon Jam
    adapted from Everyday Food, December 2010

    2 pounds sliced bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
    2 medium yellow onions, diced small
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    3/4 cup brewed coffee
    1/2 cup cider vinegar
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup maple syrup
    2 teaspoons molasses

    In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium-high, stirring occasionally, until bacon is lightly browned, 20-25 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper-towel covered plate to drain.

    Pour off all but one tablespoon bacon fat (reserve for another use). Add onions, cook until translucent. Add garlic, cook until fragrant. Add coffee, vinegar, sugar, syrup, and molasses. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes, scraping up brown bits with a wooden spoon. Add bacon, stir to combine.

    Transfer mixture to a large slow-cooker (5-6 quarts). Cook uncovered on high for 4 hours or until syrupy. Transfer to food processor and pulse to coarsely chop.

    Cool, then refrigerate in airtight containers, up to 4 weeks. Also freezes well.

    Makes about 3 cups.
