- 8 slices of bacon or prosciutto
- 12 oz of fresh (blanched) or frozen whole green beans
- 4 tablespoons of apricot preserves or Sarabella’s Wicked Sweet Chutney
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Clean fresh green beans and blanch for 5 minutes. Drain and place green beans in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process and keep the bright green color. Toss green beans with preserves or chutney. Gather a small medium size bundle and wrap with bacon or prosciutto. Arrange bundles in single layer in casserole dish and bake 15-20 minutes.
