These medium-sized prunes are semi-dry and still contain their stones. They are produced from the Prunier d'Ente variety of plum and are known as "Agen Prunes".
Prunes are a great way to sweeten recipes and can act as a replacement/partial replacement for the butter/fat in recipes.
The moisture in these prunes is natural, and not added later. Some prunes are dried until they are rock-hard, but these are still around 25% moist. They are soft, and they slip away from the stone nicely (see bottom-right picture!)
These prunes are ideal for eating on their own, or lightly dusted with cocoa powder!
They can also be used as an ingredient in your own home-made energy snacks! Remove the stones before squishing together with dates, banana, cacao powder, almond butter, vanilla and cinnamon. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
