1 lb. bacon, cut into 1" pieces
1 onion, finely chopped
4 shallots, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. chili powder
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, reserving about a tablespoon of bacon fat in the pan.Reduce heat to medium-low. Add onion and shallots to the pan and cook, stirring often, until the onions are caramelized, about 15 minutes.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.
Let cool before transferring to a jar. Serve with anything you damned well please. This takes about half an hour to prepare and
thirty seconds a few days to eat. It yields about a cup and a half of yummity yum yum goodness.
