  • Cook the bacon until crispy. Reserve bacon fat.
  • Transfer bacon grease to your electric pressure cooker and turn onto Saute feature, stirring figs and shallots for 6 minutes. Crumble the bacon into the pot and stir together.
  • Cover and set the release valve to seal, cooking on high pressure for 3 minutes. Carefully adjust the release valve to vent. Once the steam has fully escaped, open the pressure cooker and stir.
  • Stir in the vinegar. Transfer the fig bacon mixture to a food processor and pulse until chunky for more of a relish or about 10 pulses for jam. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
