1 (14-ounce) package dried apricots
1/2 cup whole almonds
1 pound sliced bacon
1/4 cup plum or apple jelly
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1. Fold each apricot around an almond. Cut bacon strips into thirds; wrap a strip around each apricot and secure with a wooden pick.
2. Place on two ungreased 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pans. Bake, uncovered at 375 F (190 C) for 25 minutes or until bacon is crisp, turning once. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
3. In a small saucepan, combine jelly and soy sauce; cook and stir over low heat until warm and smooth. Serve as a dipping sauce.
