    Bacon: Cured meat from the back or sides of a pig.

    Jam: A sweet spread or preserve made from fruit and sugar boiled to a thick consistency.

    ???

    To be honest I was getting ready to slate this hard coz it sounds like pure fuckery but then I found the recipe and it ain't that bad. It does look like shit though.

    500grams/1 pound smoked bacon (or use regular bacon and liquid smoke)
    4 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 medium brown onion sliced
    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    Tabasco sauce (according to taste)
    1 cup coffee
    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    1/4 cup maple syrup
    Black pepper to taste
    extra water

    1. In a non stick pan, fry the bacon in batches until lightly browned and beginning to crisp. Using a pair of scissors cut into 1 inch pieces.

    2. Fry the onion and garlic in the rendered bacon fat on medium heat until translucent.

    After 5 minutes of cooking

    3. Transfer the bacon, onion and garlic into a heavy based cast iron pot and add the rest of the ingredients except for the water. Simmer for 2 hours adding 1/4 of a cup of water every 25-30 minutes or so and stirring.

    After 30 minutes-1 hour of cooking

    After 2 hours of cooking

    4. When ready, cool for about 15-20 minutes and then place in a food processor. Pulse for 2-3 seconds so that you leave some texture to the “jam” or of course you could keep whizzing and make it a smoother and more paste like.
