Today I'm sharing the recipe for one of my all-time favorite condiments: bacon onion chutney. I’ll be honest, I never was a huge fan of bacon. I don’t hate it but I have never craved it and can live without it…except for this jam. Whenever bacon is turned into maple bacon or this condiment, I cannot for the life of me, resist! This chutney is perfect for topping burgers, serving with french fries, or even sandwiched in a grilled cheese. The options are truly endless! Make this bacon onion chutney and I promise it will take your ordinary meal to extraordinary.

  • 3/4 lb bacon, chopped
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/3 cup water

Cook bacon in a heavy pot over medium heat until the fat has rendered out and the bacon begins to crisp about 15 minutes. Drain the fat.
Add the remaining ingredients, reduce heat to medium-low, and cover. Cook for 15 minutes or until the onions have softened, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid and continue to simmer the chutney for about 30-40 minutes or until it resembles a dark chutney. Add more water while cooking if the mixture becomes too dry.
Remove from heat and let cool. Serve as desired.

    I'm curious as to how long it could be stored? It sounds delicious and like something that should kept on hand for those late night, so hungry and can't sleep, grilled cheese on rye cravings!

      Store it in glass containers in the fridge. It should keep for 2 weeks.
