    What to do with lots of prunes?

    I live in a town where winter means lots of prunes available cheaply. It's nearly spring and I still have kilos of the things in my fridge.

    I have a great French recipe for a prune tart and I have found a recipe for " Chocolate, Prune and Almond Slab ", but there is only so many of these that you want to eat each season.

    Any other ideas - aside from stewing?

    Prune cake! <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>

    My old mum used to make the best in the world and it's still my favourite cake. This is the nearest recipe to it I can find (without calling my sister), and she used to use marsala instead of sherry or Grand Marnier, with a marsala cream layer in the middle.

    How about some Prune-Nut Bread or try this one for over 320 recipes.

    Recipe #44 looks interesting. <img src=/S/chef.gif border=0 alt=chef width=19 height=22>

    Re: What to do with lots of prunes?

    Hi

    The way my mum used to deal with prunes was a really difficult recipe.

    1. Take prunes, place in large jar.

    2. Take bottle of port wine, pour over prunes. Cover jar.

    3. Place in fridge for a few days/weeks.

    4. Eat with icecream, drink liquid. Enjoy.

    Hope it is useful and not too hard to try.

    Regards

    John
