  • Prep Time: 15 Mins.
  • Cook Time: 25 Mins.


  • Dates:

  • 24 pitted medium to large dates
  • ¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 12 thin slices of bacon, halved widthwise
  • 24 Fisher® Pecan Halves
  • ¼ cup chopped Fisher® Pecan Halves
  • Sauce:

  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a jelly roll pan or a cookie sheet with raised edges with aluminum foil.
  2. Prepare the dates:Season the dates generously with black pepper. Pull on or cut the dates lengthwise so that they open and insert 1 pecan into each date. Wrap tightly in a strip of bacon. Put the dates on the prepared pan, seam side down. 
  3.  Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the dates over and continue baking 5 minutes or until the bacon has browned on the top and bottom. Transfer to a serving platter and top with the sauce and chopped nuts.
  4. Make the sauce:Meanwhile, cook the honey in a small skillet over medium heat until it boils, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and carefully add the red wine vinegar. Return the pan to the heat and allow it to cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes over low heat. Keep warm.
