A lovely, light, fruit dessert to serve when the weather gets cooler.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put all the ingredients, except the raisins, in a saucepan.
  2. Simmer over medium heat until prunes soften, stirring occasionally, about 12 minutes.
  3. Remove cinnamon stick.
  4. Spoon into serving bowl and stir in raisins.
  5. Let stand atleast 2 hours to blend flavours (can be prepared up to 1 week ahead; refrigerate).
  6. Serve cool or at room temperature.
  7. Note: To make these a little more decadent, you could serve in a pretty, fancy glass, with a dollop of greek yoghurt, creme fraiche, or sour cream and a sprinkling of crushed pistachios.

Every once in a while, your DH surprises you by doing something so totally unpredictable. I'm not sure why, but I was prepared for him not to like this dish much. I was so wrong! I found it a little too sweet, but he devoured it w/gusto! I took a pic, but it doesn't begin to compare w/the 1 you already have. Thx Ev. — Jun 5, 2006
