Plums wrapped in bacon from the Air Fryer are an excellent appetizer!
This delicious combination offers a mouthful of contrast – crispy salty bacon and soft, melting sweet plums – served wonderfully hot or cold. Replace prunes with dates and figs for an equally delicious alternative.
Air Fryer baked plums wrapped in bacon has a delicious taste and are easy and quick to make.
Let’s know the ingredients first.
Bacon is salt-cured pork that is prepared from various cuts of meat typically including the pork belly, back cuts that contain less fat in comparison to the belly. It is consumed as a side dish, or on its own and also used as an ingredient to flavor dishes such as club sandwiches.
Bacon is high in saturated fat and cholesterol, which are not as dangerous as previously thought. Typical bacon serving sizes are also small.
Pork is rich in many nutrients, including protein and several vitamins. The same is true for bacon.
Eating lots of bacon and other salty foods increases blood pressure in people who are sensitive to salt. It can also increase the risk of stomach cancer.
– How to keep bacon moist?
If you experience that your bacon is not moisture enough you can try a different method. Place the bacon and enough water to cover the pan over high heat. When the water boils, reduce the heat to medium. When all the water is boiling, reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking until the bacon is crispy and browned. When we tried this method, the meat was crushed instead of wilted when cooked, and the bacon was fresh and comfortable but moist, not chewy or crumbly.
The addition of water keeps the initial cooking temperature low and tender, so the meat remains moist and tender. By the time the water reaches its boiling point (212 degrees) the bacon fat is almost all there, so you’ll burn less meat while waiting for the fat to cook.
Plums are very nutritious and, apart from fiber and antioxidants, it turns out that it contains lots of vitamins and minerals that can reduce the risk of several chronic diseases. You can eat plums fresh or dried.
The levels of vitamins and minerals in plums and prunes differ slightly, but they are both full of nutrients. Also, prunes contain more calories, fiber, and carbohydrates than fresh plums.
