Mrs. Visnevskis' Plumju Putas (Prune Whip)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lennie

My grandfather loved prunes, but I don't know too many folks who still do; besides me, that is. This is from a 1965 fund-raising cookbook for Toronto's Women's College Hospital.

Rich and delicious - whipped up a batch and have it in the fridge to combat unpleasant side effects from the pain medications prescribed for a periodontal surgery I am undergoing later this morning. I am rather a bit heavy on the prune puree but that is OK as I am using this as a medicinal to thwart the side effect that makes me grumpy. Thanks for posting - the sieving is a step I would ordinarily skip but did this am as I don't want bits getting hung up in the plasters. Thanks for posting. Delicious, nutricious and ever so much tastier than Citrucel. LOL
