    Suzy_Q's Note:

    These are sooo delicious and very economical during hard times. Great served warm for breakfast or as a light dessert. Don't be scared of prunes...they're just dried plums! They're my favorite dried fruit and very healthy.

    1. 1
      Place prunes in a saucepan and cover with cold water and lemon juice. Cover and simmer on the lowest heat for 20-30 minutes or until soft and much of the water has been absorbed. Serve. The other option is to combine all ingredients and place in the refrigerator overnight (heating not required) and serve cold.

      I have been eating this recipe for 57 years so I'm reviewing it, in regards to a life-time of enjoyment. I come from a Scandinavian background where this dish was just standard fare in the home; we'd enjoy these daily. What my Gran would do is take the chunky peels from an orange and throw that and a cinnamon stick into the prunes and water. When done, the peels and cinnamon stick would be removed. We had this plain (either hot, warm or cool); on top of pound cake or with a dollap of whipped cream on top. In my life, many times "simple" is always BEST!

      Exactly as my mother served prunes, many years ago, on a regular basis. The lemon is the addition that makes them so special. Fond memories of times gone by. Thanks Suzy!
