1 cup sugar
1 cup red wine vinegar
1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon honey
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound slab bacon, cut into ¼-inch thick slices
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place sugar and vinegar in a small saucepan and cook until over high heat until the sugar is melted. Add the mango and cook until the mixture is reduced by half and the mango is soft, stirring occasionally, 5-6 minutes.
2. Transfer the mixture to a food processor and process until smooth; strain the mixture into a bowl season with the honey and salt and pepper.
3. Place the bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and brush both sides with some of the glaze, bake until golden brown and just crisp, about 10-12 minutes, brushing the top of the bacon with more of the glaze every few minutes.
