Prunes Stuffed With Almonds

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kumquat the Cats fr

Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. From a cookbook of food along the Danube, this recipe is Hungarian. Technically a side dish, not a dessert. Can be served with turkey. (I wouldn't but then I'm a vegetarian.) I have not tried this recipe yet.

I think if someone liked prunes a lot, this recipe would be worth an extra star. Me, I don't like them, but I don't dislike them. I expected them to rehydrate like raisins do, keeping their firmness, but the insides got a little gooshey for me. DD6 pouted as she took her first bite until I reminded her that it was an almond inside, not a pit! lol The sauce was nice, and I went ahead and made a reduction of it, which was very nice for dipping our roast in. Very well written recipe, thank you for sharing. :) made for ZWT4.
