Share Recipe





Cook bacon in a large saucepan until crisp. Transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate; discard drippings.

Add tomatoes, onion, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vinegar, garlic, and pepper flakes to pan along with bacon. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring often. Simmer mixture, stirring occasionally, until it has a jam-like consistency, 1¼–1½ hours. Stir parsley into jam and season with salt and black pepper.
