      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!

      This was terrific! I squeezed in the juice of 1/2 large lemon and then tossed it in with the prunes. Great sweet/sour combo. I drank the left over water as tea. I really like the addition of the lemon instead of the traditional honey. Next time I will try doing this with mixed dried fruit as one other poster mentioned. Thx. for sharing!

      This was really quick and easy to make. I used an extra tablespoon of lemon juice, because the 1 tablespoon was hardly there in the initial taste test.

      This was absolutely delicious. I had some dried cherries and blueberries on hand so I threw a hand full in also. This will be a regular treat at my house.

      I think people forget the merits of prunes. They're delicious, high in fiber and vitamins! The lemon hits the spot. I threw in some grated lemon rind too. I have to be careful I don't overindulge - HA!!
