Sweet and savory, with the indulgent flavors of bacon and maple syrup, this tasty recipe makes for a delicious appetizer, snack, or condiment.

1 1/2 lbs sliced bacon, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces

2 medium yellow onions, diced small

3 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup dark brown sugar, tightly packed

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

3/4 cup brewed coffee

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until fat is rendered and bacon is lightly browned, about 20 minutes.  With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain.
  2. Pour off all but 1 tbsp fat from skillet, and add onions and garlic, cooking until onions are translucent, about 6 minutes.  Add vinegar, brown sugar, maple syrup, and coffee, and bring to a boil for about 2 minutes, stirring and scraping browned bits from skillet with a wooden spoon.  Add bacon, and stir to combine.
  3. Transfer mixture to a 6qt slow cooker and cook on high, uncovered, until liquid is syrupy, about 3 1/2 to 4 hours.  Transfer to a food processor, and pulse until coarsely chopped.  Let cool, then refrigerate in airtight containers, up to 4 weeks.
