How to Make Bacon Chutney!

This Bacon Chutney will be a dream come true! Chutney is very different than Jam. Jam only has a means of preservative of sugar. Chutneys are cooked and preserved with some savory ingredients that presents a balance in flavor.

–Bacon –Chopped onion –Minced garlic –Apple Cider Vinegar –Brown sugar –Maple syrup –Coffee –Red bell pepper


Cook bacon well done and drain on a paper towel. Reserve 1 tablespoon bacon grease in large skillet. Heat skillet and grease and add in Onion, Garlic and Red Bell Pepper. Cook for 5 minutes on low/medium heat.


Add Apple Cider Vinegar , Brown Sugar, Syrup and Coffee carefully to Onion mixture. Bring to a boil and scrape the pan to deglaze all those yummy bits of bacon. Continue to boil for 2 to 3 minutes.


Add Bacon and lower heat. Allow to simmer, stirring occasionally for about 30-45 minutes until it begins to thicken.


Allow to cool and transfer to an airtight container. I love keeping mine in a jelly jar in the fridge. 

Serve and Enjoy!

Allow to cool completely and store in refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. If it lasts that long!

How long will it last?
