Great party finger food for teens and adults!! Sweet, salty and nutty flavor.
Ingredients
  • 1 (14 ounce) package of dried apricots
  • ½ cup whole almonds
  • 1 pound sliced proscuitto ham
  • ¼ cup plum or apple jelly
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • toothpicks
Instructions
  1. Fold each apricot around an almond.
  2. Cut proscuitto ham strips into thirds, wrap a strip around each apricot and secure with a toothpick.
  3. Place on two ungreased 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pans.
  4. Bake, uncovered at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until proscuitto ham is crisp, turning once.
  5. In a small saucepan, combine jelly and soy sauce, cook and stir over low heat for 5 minutes or until warmed and smooth.
  6. Remove apricots to paper towels to drain. Serve with sauce.
Notes
The original recipe calls for 1 pound sliced bacon. If you use the bacon add 10 minutes to cooking time. (Teens seem to prefer the bacon -- it is also cheaper to buy than the proscuitto ham) For a variation: You may use dried pineapple, water chestnuts and bacon.
