Bacon Tomato Jam

Bacon Tomato Jam? Just trust me.
 Thank goodness that most bacon is Gluten Free because bacon just makes everything better. This has to be one of my favorite recipes that I have created. It was one of those recipes that you barely have any left when it's ready because you have already eaten half the pan. It is sweet and savory, and would work on so many foods. Imagine it on a big turkey burger with a gluten free bun. That's happening soon. Serve it with some eggs and toast or on its own as long as you make it and eat it. 
Enjoy! XO

10 Roma Tomatoes, Chopped
1/2 Pound Bacon *I used Hickory Smoked, Chopped
1/4 Cup Coconut Palm Sugar
1/2 TSP Salt
1/8 Tsp Pepper
1/2 Red Onion, Diced

Heat a saucepan over medium heat and partially cook bacon. Drain the excess oil.
Add the onions and continue to cook for 2-3 more minutes, Stirring and making sure nothing burns. 
Add the tomatoes, coconut palm sugar, salt and pepper.
Cook for about an hour, stirring frequently. 
The bacon jam will be caramelized and gooey when ready.
If you want smaller bacon pieces, chop the finished jam a bit to get your desired bacon chunk size.
