Bacon Jam

I found this recipe in an Everyday Food Magazine and I thought this sounded odd. I just had to try it, just because it called for bacon and everything with bacon is good!! I really enjoyed this recipe. I serve it with toasted GF English muffins.

1 1/2 pounds sliced GF bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 medium onions, diced
3 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
3/4 cup brewed coffee

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until fat is rendered and bacon is lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon onto a paper towel to drain.
Pour off all but 1 tbsp fat from skillet (reserve for another use); add onions and garlic and cook until onions are translucent, about 6 minutes.
Add vinegar, brown sugar, maple syrup and coffee and bring to a boil, stirring and scrapping up the brown bits from skillet with a wooden spoon, about 2 minutes.
Add bacon and stir to combine.
Transfer mixture to a 6 quart crock-pot and cook on high, uncovered, until liquid is syrupy, 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
Transfer to a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.
Let cool, then refrigerate in airtight containers, up to 4 weeks.
