Ingredients

  • 30 stoned prunes
  • 30 whole salted almond
  • 30 small fresh thyme sprigs
  • 200ml dry oloroso sherry
  • 15 streaky bacon rashers, in half
  • Cocktail sticks

Method

  1. Stuff the prunes with 1 whole salted almond and a small fresh thyme sprig each. Soak in sherry overnight, covered, somewhere cool.
  2. When ready to cook, remove the prunes from the sherry and wrap each one in a bacon rasher, securing with a cocktail stick.
  3. Heat a grill to high, then arrange the wrapped prunes on a foil-lined baking sheet, spaced. Grill, turning once, for 8-10 minutes until the bacon is crisp and cooked through. Serve
