Grandma's Water Chestnuts Rolled in Bacon

This recipe has been in my family for years and one of my favorites. But the original recipe called for corn-syrup laden ketchup and brown sugar.  Here is my modification that is JUST as delicious! Guess who will be bringing these to the next family party!? They are truly addictive!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

1 pack of REAL bacon. I get this from Trader Joe's. 
1-2 cans of water chestnuts sliced or whole
Coconut Palm Sugar

Cut bacon slices in half.
Wrap each slice around water chestnut
Poke with one toothpick
Place in glass pyrex dish
Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes

About 15 minutes before they are done begin to make the sauce

In a saucepan add:
1 cup of Organic Ketchup (I use Trader Joe's)
¼ cup of Coconut Palm Sugar (Whole Foods)
Heat to boiling, stir often

Take bacon/chestnuts out of over
Place on paper towel to “drain”
Put bacon/chestnuts into another deep dish and top with sauce

ENJOY! Better grab some of these fast, or you might not get one!

Coconut Palm sugar tastes amazing! Here is more of a reason to use it:

Lots of nutrition!
