Comb Honey Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates

DSC_4789title
I am (clearly) on a bacon kick. And a comb honey kick. It was only a matter of time before I descended into the culinary madness of a bacon wrapped honey hors d’oeuvre!
To recap for those of you just joining us: I have mentioned in earlier posts that when Jonathan and I set out to make some fancy hors d’oeuvres using comb honey, we were surprised at the lack of recipes on the internet for such a unique, tasty and classy looking natural health food.
Every recipe or “how to” blog post on comb honey just said to eat it plain, spread it on toast, or serve with cheese. BO-RING! So we were determined to introduce to the interwebs some new, original and innovative uses for comb honey in an hors d’oeuvre setting.
As detailed in my blog post Comb Honey – The Ultimate Raw Honey:
Comb honey is basically a chunk of the hexagonal shaped beeswax cells of the honeycomb, each cell filled with raw honey, exactly at the bees packed it.
Because the honey is still in the comb and has not been touched by man, it contains every bit of pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, and aromatics that the bees produced in the hive. There’s no filtering, processing or rearranging of the raw product by human hands.
Over the past few weeks I have been posting some of our comb honey hors d’oeuvre recipes that we’ve had a blast dreaming up, creating and tasting.
This particular recipe was, as I said, inevitable. Jonathan and I have made bacon wrapped dates stuffed with nuts before, and we figured stuffing them with honey would be a stroke of genius. And boy, was it! The honey worked to caramelize the date and the bacon, making it more candy than appetizer! You really MUST give it a try!
And bacon-wrapped not your thing? Leave off the bacon and just try the date stuffed with honey and uncooked. DELICIOUS!

You Will Need:

Dried Pitted Dates
Comb Honey
Thinly Sliced Bacon
Toothpicks
With a knife, gently slice open the dates lengthwise. Cut off a sliver of comb honey and push it into the date. Cut a length of bacon in half and wrap it tightly around the honey stuffed date, securing with a toothpick. (Soak the toothpicks in water for an hour so they won’t burn in the oven!)
In an oven preheated to 375 degrees, cook the bacon wrapped dates for 30-40 minutes or until done. Checking on them often as bacon cooks at different rates according to thickness! Then, enjoy!
