DIRECTIONS

  • Fry the bacon until very crisp.
  • Reserve and measure the drippings – you will need 2 or 3 ounces of melted fat.
  • Set the bacon aside and crumble 3 rashers when it is cool.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, sauté the onions, stirring often, until they are all quite brown or are turning black.
  • In the meantime, pour the water, honey and vinegar into a bowl.
  • Mix thoroughly with a whisk.
  • Add cornstarch and whisk thoroughly again.
  • Add tomato paste and whisk thoroughly again.
  • Add the mustard to the onions and gently but thoroughly mix together.
  • Now pour the water, vinegar, honey, cornstarch and tomato paste melange into the saucepan with the mustard and onions.
  • Add the crumbled bacon and optional hot sauce.
  • Stir constantly over medium-high heat until thickening and boiling.
  • Refrigerate in a tightly sealed container.
