If you've had these before, YOU KNOW how good they are…. the perfect party hand around.


  • 12 pitted prunes
  • third cup verjuice
  • 5 rashers streaky bacon halved
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Soak prunes in verjuice for half hour to plump them up (they'll taste so much better too).
  2. Preheat oven to hot and line a baking tray with baking paper. Wrap each prune with bacon and spear with a toothpick (make sure the seam of the bacon overlaps so it seals together).
  3. Place on baking sheet seam side down and drizzle a little olive oil over them. Bake until bacon is cooked through about 20 minutes.


*You can use figs or dates instead of prunes and the prunes can also be stuffed with blue cheese or cottage cheese. Verjuice is from grapes and is similiar to wine but more flavoursome in cooking without the alcohol. Get yourself a bottle as a pantry investment, you will never look back.

  • What is verjuice? Where is the best place to buy it?

  • I have never heard of Verjuice…I will have to check it out. I dont drink so dont tend to have alcohol in the house and if I need wine for a recipe it means im often left with 3/4 of a bottle that i have no use for.


  • Honestly? This doesn’t appeal to me, sorry.
