Prunes are sweet black dried fruits that resemble large raisins. They are made by pitting and drying fresh ripe plums. When dried the water in the fruit meat is removed, and the meat becomes soft and chewy. Dried fruits typically retain the flavors, sugars, and nutrients of their fresh versions, but at a higher concentration. Dried Prunes are fat free, high in fiber, and have no added sugars despite their sweet taste.
Dried pitted prunes are easy to enjoy. They can be eaten whole for snacking, or cooked up in a variety of ways. They can be stuffed, diced, simmered, stewed, and sautéed. Consider adding them to rice, couscous, or quinoa dishes for a touch of sweetness and interesting texture. Stuff them with cheese and wrap with bacon or prosciutto for a quick gourmet appetizer. Plums, and therefore dried prunes, compliment most meats as a marinade or stuffing, especially pork or beef roasts, duck, or turkey. And of course, like all dried fruits, dried prunes are easily added to oatmeal, cakes, muffins, sweet breads, and pie fillings.
