    Fancy prune skewers

    Whatever you call these, devils or angels, back in the 1980s we’d fight for them as kids. This version is a little more substantial than my mother’s but I’ve certainly carried on her tradition of soaking the prunes in port or sherry overnight. I’m not sure if it was the boozy prunes or the crispy bacon that we adored so much, and I don’t really care – they’re just insanely moreish. Recipe by Fiona Hugues.
