The unique flavor of this bacon can be attributed to the balsamic vinegar. Balsamic is imported from Italy and has a full bodied, slightly sweet flavor and rich reddish brown color. Available in kitchen specialty shops and some large supermarkets, it is definitely worth the extra cost.
Light or dark brown sugar can be used in this recipe. The dark brown sugar will give the bacon a deeper, more caramelized flavor.
