Sometimes I think we need to concentrate on the funny foods. Like prunes. Prunes are the laughing stock of the food world, and such a pity. Prunes are delicious, available in your pantry at all times (unless you forgot them at the store) and make for great foods, both sweet and savory?
Today I am making Prunes Poached in Red Wine, for our Sunday dinner.
Prunes in Red Wine
adapted from Kitchenography
1 pound pitted prunes (about 40)
1 1/4 c sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
2 1/2 c dry red wine
|Prunes in Red Wine and Cinnamon|
2 8oz containers Mascarpone cheese
Combine in a large covered pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer 45 minutes. Transfer to a dish, cover and chill until serving time.
To serve place a large spoonful of the cheese on a rimmed plate or shallow dish, add prunes and drizzle syrup over.
