Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the bacon syrup: Cook the bacon in a skillet, over medium heat, flipping occasionally, until crisp, 5 to 8 minutes; drain on paper toweling and coarsely chop.
  2. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings and add the maple syrup and honey to the skillet; stir to combine and return bacon pieces to heat through, about 5 minutes (can be made up to 5 days in advance and warmed over low heat).
  3. To serve: Cut cornbread into 2-inch cubes (you'll have left-overs) and warm in a 250°F oven (if made previously) for 10 minutes.
  4. Place a cube of cornbread on each of 8 plates and arrange peaches and gelato near the cornbread; top with bacon syrup, sage, and a pinch of aleppo pepper, if using.
