  5. Bring to a simmer, then turn heat to low and simmer until the tomatoes just begin to break down (roughly 10-15 minutes).
  6. Stir through the fruit pectin, smoked paprika and crisped bacon.
  7. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil while continuing to stir. Allow to boil for 1-2 minutes.
