maple syrup sauce

My bacon and maple syrup sauce


3 to 4 slices good bacon, diced

2 med. heads shallot, sliced or 2 tsp. dried

1 heaping tsp. Savor Spices WOW seasoning

1/8 cup cider vinegar, I used organic

1/8 cup water

¼ cup maple syrup, grade B

Fresh ground pepper to taste


Brown up the bacon pretty well, remove and drain on paper towels, set aside. In a small sauce pan heat up the water, vinegar, maple syrup and shallots. Bring it to a boil then set pan off the heat; add the bacon, WOW seasoning and pepper. Stir well and then reheat when ready to use.


I served this over maple syrup brined pork tenderloins and was delicious. I think the Savor Spices WOW, Way Out West, seasoning really makes this sauce. It is sage based but not over powered with sage.


Note: I used Penzey’s dried shallots and I used Bragg’s raw, unfiltered, apple cider vinegar. I love it for any recipe that calls for apple cider vinegar. This makes about 4 servings of 2 tablespoon each.
