  • Reviews

  • “I was skeptical like others, but this is a delicious recipe!I took it to a neighborhood party last weekend and it was so popular, I’m taking it to a Haloween party this weekend. I followed the instructions just as given.Thanks, Bergy!”

  • “i love making these they are always a hit!!!! the only thing i do diffrently is stuff an almond in the middle of the apricot they add a nice little crunch!”

  • “I wanted something different and easy for a church potluck (finger food) and this met my criteria. This was a huge hit! The only thing I did a little differently was I stuck them under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp the bacon. Excellent! A real keeper!”

  • “I made this with fresh apricots.It was good.It will be better with dried as the flavor will be more concentrated.”

  • “I wasn’t sure that I would find this recipe here?!I had these at a friend’s house a while ago and just loved them!If you’re skeptical…..just believe what you read in the reviews and go for it!These little morsels are amazing!”

  • “Loved these and will make them again.Thanks Bergy.”

  • “I also got to enjoy these at the Appy party, and have to agree with all the other reviews, I thought it sounded like an odd combo, but hey, it really works, THanks Bergy for a great recipe and thanks to Nora for making it”

  • “Nora made these for theappy party held at Country Lady’s house and they were yummy!”

  • “Bergy this is one of those ‘who’da thunk it’ recipes.I would never have thought of bacon and apricots but I’m definately a believer now! I had the pleasure of these little bites at an Appy party this weekend.I will definately be making these….. perhaps when I don’t have to share ;)Thanks as well to Nora who had more vision than I would have.”

  • “Once again, dear Bergy, we were fortunate to have the best surrounded by equality… We did enjoy the appy soiree with its variety of tidbits… Heavy on the Tid, and shy on the Bits…. As you can see, the photos give excess a whole new meaning.The only “bit” about your recipe was when I “bit” into the delicious combination of bacon wrapped apricot carefully dipped into the soy sauce.Thanks again, Bergy for your contribution to the Ontario Appy party… carefully prepared and contributed by Nora”

  • “I tasted these at Country Lady’s appy party and they are very tasty little nibbles.Hopefully, they are just as good with chicken bacon as that is usually what I have in the fridge!”

  • “Ive tried the bacon wrapped dates and liked them so I thought I should try this as well. Very very good. So easy to make and think that the dates and apricots will go nicely together on an appie plate. I baked them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper (less mess to clean up) Mine baked in 20 minutes. I had some plum jam that was chunky so I used a stick blender to make it a bit smoother. Right after making the sauce I found the soy sauce strong but the next day it mellowed alot. Thanks for sharing this recipe, one I will be making again.Made for “This little piggy went to market challenge in the cooking photo forum.”
