Makes: 2-2.5 cups Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 4 hrs
4 cups cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 lb bacon
1 large sweet Vidallia onion
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup dark maple syrup
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
1/8 cup whiskey
1.5 tablespoons grainy mustard
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoon smoked salt
fresh cracked pepper to taste
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 230 degrees. Halve the cherry tomatoes, toss in the olive oil and place cut side up on sheet. Roast for 1.5-2 hrs, until they begin the wrinkle but are still juicy. Remove from oven and put in large pot.
Dice the bacon and put in heavy bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Fry for 2 minutes then add the onions. Fry together until bacon is crispy and onions are browned. Add to pot and return the skillet to stove. Add all of the remaining ingredients (except the whiskey) and deglaze the pan. Pour into the pot, stirring well and bring to a simmer on medium-high. Reduce heat to low and reduce the jam for about 2 hrs, until thick and syrupy. Remove from heat and stir in the whiskey.
Pour into food processor or blender and whirl until desired consistency. Let cool completely before transferring to jars. This recipe keeps for 2 weeks in the fridge. Enjoy!
