Bacon and Caramelized Onion Marmalade

So … I jumped on the bacon jam bandwagon … finally … and at the request of one of my best friends. He loves bacon. I mean really loves bacon. He kept sending me text messages with recipes of bacon jam. Many text messages that said things like “I just ran across this again,” and “this looks interesting.” I took the hint and spent a few hours in the kitchen test driving a few bacon marmalade recipes. I wasn’t exactly sure what we would use it for … spread in on crackers? eat it with a spoon? I ended up putting some on hamburgers and … oh my goodness, it was yummy!

I finally decided the best combination was bacon, caramelized onion, brown sugar, a little vinegar and a lot of whiskey … or bourbon … or scotch. He likes bacon. I like whiskey. We were both winners.
