Ingredients

  • 30 stoned prunes
  • 30 whole salted almond
  • 30 small fresh thyme sprigs
  • 200ml dry oloroso sherry

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.
