You Can Do This: Its A Pimento Cheese Waffles!

2 (4-ounce) jars sliced pimentos, with their liquid
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
4 ounces sharp orange cheddar cheese, grated
1 (2-ounce) jar diced pimentos, rinsed and drained
1 pound sliced bacon, cooked until crisp, for serving


Put the pimentos with their liquid, sugar, water and vinegar into a high-sided medium saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly. Carefully pour the mixture into a blender, vent the lid, and holding the lid down by covering it with a folded tea towel, puree the mixture until smooth. Return the mixture to the saucepan, bring to a boil over medium heat and let it bubble away, stirring occasionally, until it has reduced by half and is thick and syrupy, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pan, then transfer to a jar. The syrup will keep in the fridge for a week; just bring it to room temperature before serving.
