Date with a Pig

Date with a Pig
No photo yet, I apologize. They’re eaten that fast—

Apple-smoked Bacon– 1 package
Medjool dates– about 30
Savory Sauce

What to do
Cut dates in 1/2, discard seeds.
Cut bacon in thirds, so you have about 3″ strips to work with.
Wrap bacon around date halves.
Secure with metal or bamboo pick.

In a convection oven;
Bake at 340* for about 10 minutes a side.
Regular oven; bake at 350* for about 12 minutes a side.
Drain off bacon grease & save 1 T. for “Savory Sauce”.

Habanero Balsamic Sauce-
In a saucepan;
4 parts Ojai Habanero Jelly
1 part Balsamic Vinegar
Reduce for about 45 minutes over low heat.

Easily alter Habanero Balsamic Sauce to this
Savory Sauce

In a saucepan over low heat;
Warm 1 1/2 cups Habanero Balsamic Sauce
with 5-ounces Chévre
Add 1 T. bacon grease + any date bits left over.
Heat through. Stir & serve.
bet you can’t eat just one
