Prunes in Port

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by mummamills

I know people that have this with their cornflakes :) Personaly I like them as a snack, but they are great as a quick dessert with custard or ice cream. I pour the prunes into sterilised glass jars, and they keep for months. If you want these as gifts you can easily double the recipe.

Superb......I make a version of these myself with Armagnac brandy, so I knew I would like them with port and wine as a change! I made half the amount for an elegant dessert for my husband and I; we ate these "au natural", with all the boozy juices poured all over them! I suspect that they would also be good with a dollop of creme fraiche or ice-cream too. Made for Aussie/NZ recipe Swap #9. Thanks! FT:-)
