Bacon Marmalade

Bacon Marmalade

Yield: 1 quart


  • 1 1/2 lbs bacon
  • 3 cups yellow onions, 1/4" dice
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 ea bay leaves


Place a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add the bacon. Saute until slightly crispy.

Next add the onions. Saute until translucent. Drain fat. Deglaze with the apple cider vinegar.

Next add the brown sugar, stir to combine. Add the bay leaves and simmer for 15 minutes or until thickened.

Remove from heat and cool.

This is the perfect topping for pimento cheese.

    Do you put the bacon back into the marmalade?

      The bacon will stay in the pan the entire time, unless you take it out to drain the fat that way.
