 Cody Road Bourbon
Ingredients
 1 lb thick-cut bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
 1 large yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
 1 shallot, minced
 5 cloves garlic, minced
 ¾ cup Cody Road Bourbon
 ½ cup water
  cup cider vinegar
  cup maple syrup
 2 tbsp light brown sugar
 1 tbsp honey
 1 tsp ground allspice
 1 tsp chili powder
Directions
1

Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 20 minutes.

2

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.

3

Reduce the heat to medium and acid the onion, shallot and garlic to the rendered fat in the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is completely softened, about 10 minutes.

4

Return the bacon to the pot, then stir in the Bourbon, water, vinegar, maple syrup, brown sugar, honey, allspice and chili powder.

5

Bring the mixture to a simmer (lower the heat if you see that it's actually boiling) and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens and a rubber spatula or wooden spoon leaves a distinct trail when dragged across the bottom of the pot, 60 to 90 min.

6

Remove from the heat and allow the bacon mixture to cool for 15 minutes.

7

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the mixture to the work bowl of a food processor.

8

Discard any excess fat in the pot. Pulse the bacon mixture until finely chopped, about 5 pulses, or to desired consistency.

9

Store the jam in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

10

The jam is best served at room temperature.
