  • 6 Pimiento (cherry peppers), sliced
  • 4 white onions, peeled and thinly sliced

  • ½ cup white balsamic vinegar

  4. Add peppers, tomatoes, onions, and garlic to bacon; stir to incorporate.
  5. Increase heat to high and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low-medium heat.
  6. Add the vinegar and honey, stirring to incorporate.
  7. Simmer, allowing vegetables to release their moisture and cook down until jam-like consistency, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  8. Remove from heat, spoon into containers and allow to cool.
  9. Serve at room temperature on baguette or as a part of a charcuterie platter.
