Servings: 12 (serving = 1 Tbsp.)


  • 3 slices bacon
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup California Prunes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Dash of hot sauce


Cut bacon into ½ inch pieces. Sauté bacon in a small skillet over medium heat until crisp (about 5 minutes). Remove bacon from skillet and drain on paper towels. Discard drippings in pan (but do not wipe skillet clean).

Add onion to pan and sauté 2 minutes. Next, stir in vinegar, orange juice, water and prunes. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or until sauce is almost completely reduced and fruit is plump (watch carefully and be sure not to burn).

Spoon mixture into bowl of a small food processor; add salt and hot sauce. Pulse 5 times or until fairly smooth. Pulse in bacon. Store in refrigerator.
