    Mikekey's Note:

    We have an old Italian prune tree in the front yard that is usually loaded every year. We fix many of them this way, and have wonderfully sweet, spicy prunes for breakfast all year. We usually spend a whole weekend canning prunes and making apple butter. (another old tree in the yard). Any type plum would most likely work.

      So easy and incredibly delicious! I substituted Nebbiolo for port and served over ice cream or plain yogurt.

      I haven't made these yet, but I was given a jar by a good friend who used this recipe sent me here for it. They are HEAVENLY. The sauce is heavy on clove (be warned if you're not a fan) so I could only eat one half here and there (amazing on ice cream) but I seriously could not stay out of them, SO good. I'd like to give them in Christmas gift baskets so I came for the recipe!

      Did these last year and, only when looking for the recipe again, did I realise that I hadn't left a review! These were delicious! I used red wine rather than port but otherwise followed the recipe. They were stored for approx 10 months before being eaten and were good enough to serve to guests! Many belated thanks!
