Wilted Lettuce

Slices bacon, Diced
3 Tablespoons cider vinegar
3 Tablespoons sugar
salt And pepper To Taste
1 Cup water
1 mess of lettuce from the garden, Room Temperature


Fry bacon and drain, reserving bacon fat. (Its quick to just slice some hunks of bacon off the end of the package, then it's already diced.) I am going to just use some bacon fat from the fridge.
Add water, sugar, salt and pepper to drippings and bring to a boil.
Add vinegar (to taste!) and cool mixture slightly. I will use Braggs vinegar, it is so good.
When ready to serve, pour hot dressing over the lettuce leaves that have been torn into bite sized pieces.
Sprinkle with bacon and toss. (Just be sure that lettuce isn't cold!)
