Have you ever heard of Bacon Jam? I hadn’t until we tried it recently at our local Brew Fest. We had it on top of hot dogs and it was delicious. Bacon jam will keep in your refrigerator for at least 2-3 weeks. Try it on bagels, burgers, eggs, and so on. I want to try it on top of crostini as an appetizer.
- 1½ lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled (save about half of the drippings to use in the mix too)
- 2 medium yellow onions, diced
- 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
- ½ C. apple cider vinegar
- ½ C. brown sugar
- ¼ C. maple syrup
- ¾ C. coffee
- Place all ingredients in a slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours until sauce turns to a nice syrupy consistency. Chop to desired consistency before serving.
