Bacon-Wrapped Prunes with Almonds

We all agree that almost anything wrapped in

bacon is a winner but this combination of dried

plums, crunchy almonds, and smoked bacon is

a singular sensation. The spike of black pepper,

tart vinegar, and a hint of sugar brings all the

flavors together.

1 cup of seeded dried prunes

½ cup of red wine vinegar

½ cup water

1 tablespoon of brown sugar

10 black peppercorns

1 teaspoon of fresh rosemary leaves

2 cloves

½ cup of smoked almonds

Smoked bacon slices

Simmer all ingredients, except for the almonds,

for five minutes, drain well and cut each prune

in half and stuff with an almond. Wrap with a

half-slice of bacon and bake, seam-side down,

in a 350 degree oven for thirty minutes.
