Put this bacon jam on hamburgers, toast, top a fried egg or just eat by the spoonful!



Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat and add bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 10 to 15 minutes; drain on paper towels.

Remove all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the skillet. Add onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cherries and cook for 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, including bacon, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until syrupy, stirring occasionally, 20 to 40 minutes.

Remove from heat and cool for 15 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and pulse a few times to reach the consistency of chunky jam. Store in a clean jar in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
