2 Prune Recipes for Four Prunes Day

Four Prunes Day, it is, and below you’ll find a 2 great recipes made with prunes that you’ll love. Simple & delicious.

Prune Facts:

prunePrunes are freestone, purplish black plums, great for eating or cooking, and delicious dried for snacking.

When dried, their sugar content is bumped up. This keeps them from molding or decaying.

Storage is easy, and refrigeration is probably best, if you are keeping them for a prolonged period.

Prunes are so delicious stewed, in sauces, as preserves, jelly or jam, chopped as an addition to muffins, tarts & cakes.

Other wonderful plums, which are interchangeable in recipes, are friar green plums, Santa Rosa, elephant heart plums, green gages, damsons and Mirabelles, which are native American plums.

1. How to Cook Stewed Prunes:

We are quite fond of stewed prunes. My recipe follows.

  • Tip: If your prunes call for soaking on their package, follow those instructions. Then, follow the recipe below.

Serve with: ice cream, if desired.
Prep Time: 7 min
Cook Time: ~ 35 min

2. How to Cook German Holiday Moos:

This recipe includes a good amount of prunes, and a ton of other great fruit, some fresh & some dried.
German Moos (pronounced “mouse”) is a “dried fruit sauce” or dessert stew. Often called “pluma moos” as well. It is most delicious, a dessert of love and amazing for the Holidays!
It reminds me of home, back on the farm as a child.
