Yields: 1 cup
1 lb. bacon, cut into 1” pieces
1 onion, finely chopped
4 shallots, mined
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ c brown sugar
¼ c maple syrup
1/3 c apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. chili powder
1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Transfer bacon to paper towel to drain, reserving about a tablespoon of bacon fat from the pan.
2. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add onion and shallots to the pan and cook, stirring often, until onions are caramelized, about 15 minutes.
3. Stir in garlic, brown sugar, maple syrup, vinegar, chili powder and cooked bacon. Bring mixture to a simmer; then reduce heat to low. Cook until the liquid has reduced and thickened and the onions are jammy, 7 to 10 minutes.
4. Let cool before transferring to jar. Serve with cheese and crackers, or on a burger.
