Hot Slaw with Bacon
  • 2 heads of cabbage, sliced into large strips
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 cup honey granules
  • water
  • 1 pound (or about 16 slices) bacon, baked WITH the grease
  1. Bake the bacon like THIS but without the honey granules. Retain the bacon AND the grease.
  2. Meanwhile, add the cabbage, balsamic and honey granules to a large stock pot and water, cover and bring to a boil. You don't want to add enough water to cover all of the cabbage, that'll be too much. I add about 4 cups and then check on the cabbage and make sure it's all steaming well after about 10 minutes. If it's not, I add some water. Boil the cabbage for about 30 minutes or until basically al dente---tender, but still with a little bite in the spines. Crumble or chop your bacon and add it and the bacon grease to the cabbage. Pour the whole delicious vat of yumminess into a gallon jar if you haven't eaten it all already and store in the fridge. So, incredibly good. Enjoy!
