@Acracadabra - One of my favorite party snacks is pear with goat cheese in the hollow and bacon wrapped around it. Believe me, you'd be a convert if you tried this dish!
Think of the bacon doing the same job with a harder fruit or vegetable that it does on your meat. I like the way it softens it without having to use lots of liquid.
The sweet-savory combination works great with an apple and hard cheese, so why not bacon and fruit?
