    Rita~'s Note:

    Found this on-line requested by a fellow Zarrie needed for my Lekvar (LEHK-vahr) Kugel Lekvar Kugel (Prune Plum)( I was able to find it canned. A thick, soft spread made of fruit (usually prunes or apricots) cooked with sugar. This Hungarian specialty is used to fill a variety of pastries and cookies. Lekvar can be purchased in cans or jars in most supermarkets.

      Wow..this tasted just like the commercial Lekvar I had in the refrigerator. It's texture was perfect, too. I'm really thrilled to have this recipe as Lekvar is difficult to find here, and I use it in place of oil in my chocolate cakes. I was so confident I would like this recipe, I made 4x recipe Using 24 oz. pruned) and it made about 24 oz. of prune butter. Rita...thanks SOOO much for sharing.

      I recently made some of this to fill my hamentashen, and Oh Wow! Yummy! I can't wait to make more! Pretty easy, and I followed the directions closely, except like another reviewer, I cooked it for closer to an hour. True, I did want it thick. One personal comment - I might cut back on the lemon a bit next time. I also made another batch with dried apricots, using a teeny bit of lemon juice, but mostly orange zest and orange juice. Also delish!!! I would like to try this with other dried fruits - how 'bout cherries? Anyway, I am thrilled to know this easy recipe! Thanks, Rita L.

      Amazing! I can't believe how easy this recipe was to make and how good it turned out! I followed the directions, but cooked it about an hour at med-low heat. (After half hour it was still too watery.) Thanks for posting!
