Level: Easy | Prep/Cook Time: 30-40 mins



  • 1 Pound Thick Sliced Applewood Smoked Bacon (I like Pepper Bacon)
  • 2 Medium Sweet Vidalia Onion
  • 2 Peaches diced small
  • 1/2 C Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 C Water
  • 1/4 C Black Coffee
  • 1 Tbl Aged Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 Tsp Smoked Paprika
  • Salt to Taste (depends on type of bacon)



  1. Cut bacon into 1/4 inch pieces and cook medium heat till not crunchy but still done with a little chew to it. (I use my Pawpaw's skillet for this. It holds the pound of bacon perfectly).
  2. Remove from pan; I use a slotted spoon to do this.
  3. Pour out almost all of the drippings and save it.
  4. Slice the onion into quarters and some medium slices, and add to the pan on medium heat once they are soft.
  5. Add the diced peaches and cook till it is all very soft
  6. Add smoked paprika, and sugar, continue to cook till thick and bubbly, about 10 minutes.
  7. Add coffee, vinegar and water and stir well.
  8. Re-add the bacon (not the drippings) continue to cook thill thick and jam like.
  9. Add salt to taste.
  10. Store in a jar or container in fridge till ready for use.
