Difficulty:
Easy
Prep Time:
5 minutes
Cook Time:
1 hour
Servings:
Makes 2 jars

Ingredients

  • 500g smoked bacon lardons
  • 1 large white onion, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 85g light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp bourbon whiskey
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 100ml freshly brewed strong black coffee

Instructions

  • Step 1: Cook the bacon in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat for 5-10 minutes until it is crisp and golden in color. Using a slotted spoon, remove the bacon and transfer it to a plate while leaving the rendered 'fat' in the pan.
  • Step 2: Reduce the heat to low and cook the onion in the bacon 'fat' for 15-20 mins until it is soft and beginning to caramelize. Mix in the garlic, sugar, cider vinegar, bourbon, maple syrup, coffee and the bacon.
  • Step 3: Simmer over low heat for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mixture is sticky and syrupy. Turn off the burner, let it cool for a few minutes, then pour the mixture into a food processor. Pulse it for a short time to cut into small chunks, then set aside to have it chill before you store it into two clean jars. Can be refrigerated for a maximum of one month.
