Walnut Stuffed Prunes

Average Rating:

A very easy and quick recipe, yet very delicious and nutritious.


5 cups dried pitted prunes
about 2 and 1/2 cups walnut halves
3/4 cup wine. I used the cooking type
powdered sugar to garnish



Take one prune at a time and stuff with the walnut halves, trying to keep the prune whole as much as possible. To make it easier, I broke the walnut halves in half and stuffed them one at a time. You can also use a butter knife to help open up the prune.


When all the prunes are stuffed, place in a medium size pan. Add the wine and cover. Cook on medium low for about 15-20 minutes. Uncover and cook an additional 10 minutes, or until the wine is evaporated.


Remove from pan and spread on a large plate, so they don’t stick together. Let cool.


Place on serving plate, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve!

Note: I used pear slices and grated orange peel to decorate with.

    If is not sweet enough, make a cream from Sour Cream with sugar, it will be like a dip for prunes.
