Prunes Poached in Red Wine and Cinnamon
Sometimes I think we need to concentrate a bit more on the funny named foods. Like prunes. Prunes are the laughing stock of the food world, and that is such a pity. Prunes are delicious, available in your pantry at all times (unless you forgot them at the store) and make for great eating, both sweet and savory!
Today I am making Prunes Poached in Red Wine, for dessert.
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 8 oz containers Mascarpone cheese
Combine dried prunes, sugar, cinnamon sticks and red wine in a large covered pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer 45 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish, cover and chill until serving time.
To serve place a large spoonful of the Mascarpone cheese on a rimmed dessert plate or shallow dish, top with a generous spoonful of the poached prunes and drizzle syrup over the top.
