Bacon Jam

Haha, yes this is Bacon Jam, and yes it is very very tasty!!!  Though I had a little miss hap with the chili  pepper flakes and it's a little hotter then I would like, it's still bacon so it has to be good.  And besides the greasy clean up, it's really easy.

Here's what you need
1/2 lb bacon
2 cloves garlic
small onion
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 cup strong coffee
1 tbsp red chili flakes

Cook bacon.
Remove bacon and dry on paper towel.  Chop bacon.
Pour out all bacon greasy except about a tbsp.  Fry onions, garlic and chili flakes (careful here, these make it hot fast) in the grease until onion is soft.
Add the vinegar, sugar, coffee and syrup.  Bring to boil, stirring and scraping up the good chunks off the bottom of the pan.
Add bacon back in, stir, reduce heat and simmer for about 20-25 mins.
Transfer to food processor and pulse.

Easy peasy!!!!!  Happy frying :-)
