Bacon makes everything better, so why not try it with peaches. Bacon Peach Jam adds a sweet and salty flavor to a burger, sandwich or add some to goat cheese on a crostini for the best appetizer out there. Easy to make and not greasy at all.

In a dutch oven or large pot, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel lined plate. Remove all but 2 tablespoons of bacon grease.
Add onions and continue to cook over medium heat until softened, about 5-8 minutes. Peel, slice and chop peaches and add to pot along with bacon, brown sugar, pepper, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar and bourbon. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until it begins to thicken, about 30 minutes depending on how juicy the peaches are. Add chipotle pepper to taste.
Remove from heat and either can or freeze what you are not going to eat. Serve at room temperature. If it has been refrigerated, warm it slightly in the microwave or let it come to room temperature before serving.
Serve on crostini with goat cheese or on sandwiches or burgers.
