    Title: Egbert Souse's Bacon Jam
    Categories: Pork, Vegetables, Herbs, Chilies
    Yield: 12 servings

    1 1/2 lb Bacon, chopped
    2 ts Butter
    4 lg Yellow onions; diced
    1 ts Salt
    1/4 c Brown sugar
    1/4 c Sherry vinegar
    1 1/2 ts Fresh thyme leaves; divided
    1 ts Fresh ground black pepper
    pn Cayenne pepper
    1/2 c Water
    2 ts Balsamic vinegar
    2 ts Extra-virgin olive oil

    Place bacon in a large, heavy-bottomed pot and cook over
    medium heat until bacon is crispy and the rendered fat
    is foaming, about 10 minutes. Pour bacon and rendered
    fat into a strainer placed over a bowl to drain fat.
    When fat is drained and bacon is cool enough to handle,
    remove bacon to a cutting board and finely chop.

    Return pot to medium heat; drizzle 2 teaspoons reserved
    bacon fat and butter in pan. Saute onions and 1 teaspoon
    salt until soft and translucent, 7 to 10 minutes.

    Stir brown sugar, sherry vinegar, 1 teaspoon thyme
    leaves, black pepper, and cayenne into onion mixture;
    add bacon. Stir water into bacon mixture and cook until
    jam is a brick-brown bacon color and has a jam
    consistency, 10 to 15 minutes.

    Remove from heat and stir balsamic vinegar, olive oil,
    and remaining 1/2 teaspoon thyme into jam; stir until
    shiny and heated through.
