"The description incorrectly refers to the shrimp as being bacon-wrapped. The Canadian bacon is actually halved and threaded onto the skewers with the shrimp.

This correction will be made soon and we apologize for the error.

"I just used apricot jam and thinned it down with some orange juice, tasted great and served them over rice. Will do again."

"Sounds good, but I'm confused. Description says "bacon-wrapped" yet the recipe says to thread it onto the skewers. Which is it?"

"Apricot nectur is found in the fruit juices section of most groceries."

"Apricot nectar is a apricot juice type drink. If you can't find it I would just puree some apricots. I think I'd puree canned apricots in natural juice for best effect - hope that helps!"
