Expert Tips

  • The unique flavor of this bacon can be attributed to the balsamic vinegar. Balsamic is imported from Italy and has a full bodied, slightly sweet flavor and rich reddish brown color. Available in kitchen specialty shops and some large supermarkets, it is definitely worth the extra cost.
  • Light or dark brown sugar can be used in this recipe. The dark brown sugar will give the bacon a deeper, more caramelized flavor.
