Step 1

Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet with the cut side up, spray, brush or drizzle them with oil and roast in a preheated 250F oven until the are starting to caramelize and shrivel but are still juicy, about 2 hours.

Cook the bacon in a large sauce pan an over medium heat until the fat has rendered and the bacon starts to get crispy and set aside, reserving 1 tablespoon of the grease in the pan.

Add the onions and cook until tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute.

Add the vinegar and deglaze the pan.

Add the coffee, brown sugar, maple syrup, bacon, chipotle chilies, cumin, pepper and tomatoes, reduce the heat and simmer until reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 1-2 hours.

Process the jam in a food processor to smooth it out to the desired texture.

If you do not finish it all in one sitting, store it in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
