Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 4 tablespoons bacon drippings
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco, or to taste, optional
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard


Place the bacon grease in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until the onions start to brown. While the onions are carmelizing, put water in a mixing bowl with honey, red wine vinegar, and Tabasco. Using a wire whisk, mix the ingredients well.

Add the cornstarch and whisk well. After the onions have carmelized, add the Dijon mustard to the onions and stir together with a rubber spatula. Add the water, vinegar, pepper sauce honey and cornstarch to the mustard and onions and mix. Continue stirring until mix thickens and just begins to boil. Remove from heat and store in refigerator until needed. Reheat in a double boiler or over very low heat setting or microwave.
