"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
10 slices of thick bacon, cut into 1/2 inch slices, cooked until brown (not crispy) NOTE: I did not cook the bacon until it was crispy. I wanted it to be brown and chewy. This allows the liquids in the recipe a chance to flavor and marinate the bacon.
4 tablespoons of bacon grease, reserved from frying up bacon
2 large red onions, diced into 1/4 inch squares (about 2.5 cups)
1 tablespoon minced garlic
dash of salt
1/4 cup diced jalapenos (this amount makes it slightly spicy, use less if worried about the heat, more if you like it)
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (don't use imitation or artificial syrups)
3/4 cup brewed coffee

Directions:
Directions:
Cook the bacon and reserve the drippings. -In a medium size sauce pan, add 2 Tablespoons of the reserved bacon grease. Wait until it is hot enough to saute and add the diced onion and garlic. Cook until the onions are clear- about 8 minutes- on medium heat, stirring every once in a while. If they start to stick to the bottom of the pan, add a bit more grease.

-Add the vinegar, brown sugar, maple syrup, 2 tablespoons of bacon grease, coffee, jalapeno's and bacon. -Bring it to a boil and then reduce heat to medium low--the jam should simmer for about 45 minutes (give or take). Check the jam every 15 minutes and stir once. You will know it is done because almost all of the liquid is gone when the jam is stirred.
