  • For corn relish.
  • Fry bacon in a large skillet and set aside. Remove most of the bacon grease leaving about a tablespoon in the pan.
  • Sautee the corn, onions, and bell pepper in the reserved bacon grease for about 5 minutes.
  • Crumble the bacon on top and add the balsamic vinegar. Mix together.
  • Salt and pepper to taste. Add more balsamic if you like the tang!
  • For pork chops.
  • Bring the maple syrup and balsamic vinegar to a simmer in a small sauce pan. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Add freshly ground pepper to taste.
  • Preheat and oil grill. Grill smoked pork chops over medium heat basting with the maple syrup/balsamic vinegar glaze. It should only take about 3 to 4 minutes per side to heat through.
