Through many convoluted steps, I found this recipe for Bacon Jam on Foodie with Family’s site (via, The Perfect…)

The recipe started with 3 pounds of bacon; as my husband says “any recipe that starts with a pound of bacon must be good”, I thought this must be extra special.

First you cut the bacon into bits and crisp it.

Then caramelize a bunch of onions in the bacon fat.

Add garlic cloves, smashed and peeled; cider vinegar; packed brown sugar (light or dark; I prefer light); pure maple syrup; and brewed strong coffee.

Reduce to a spreadable mixture with an immersion blender and store in a sterilized quart Mason jar.
Umami (Oooh-Mommy) Jam!
