DIRECTIONS:

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy, reserving about a tablespoon of bacon fat in the pan.
Reduce heat to medium-low. Add onion and shallots to the pan and cook, stirring often, until the onions are soft/caramelized, about 15 minutes.
Stir in garlic, brown sugar, maple syrup, vinegar, chili powder and cooked bacon. Bring mixture to a simmer then reduce heat to low. Cook until the liquid has reduced and thickened and the onions are jammy, 7 to 10 minutes.
Let cool before transferring to a jar. Serve with cheese and crackers. (It’s also delicious on a burger and or Brats)
