Bourbon Bacon Jam needs to be part of your summer cookout condiment tray. I mean, it's Bacon - in jam form. Need I say more? Aside from burgers, try some Bacon Jam Avocado Toast or Bacon Jam, Egg and Brie!
Chop the bacon and the onions in to 1/4 inch slices. Set aside separately from each other.
Prep a small bowl with a strainer to strain the hot bacon fat.
Whisk together Bourbon, Coffee, Brown Sugar, Cayenne, and Apple Cider Vinegar in a pourable measuring cup. Prep a 1/2 cup water.
Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. Bacon is done once the fat has rendered and the pan filled with foam - about 12-15 minutes.
Transfer the bacon to a strainer placed over a bowl. Reserve the bacon and the fat.
Add 2 tablespoons of bacon fat in to the pan. Add onions and sweat over low heat until they turn translucent. Add garlic and continue stirring occasionally. Onions are done when edges just start to turn brown.
Increase heat to high, add 1 tablespoon bacon fat and all the cooked bacon. Stir for about 30 seconds then add the bourbon mixture to deglaze the pan. Scrape any bits off the bottom of the pan. Reduce heat to medium low and add the water. Cook jam to desired constancy - 3-10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
