What are prunes?
Prunes are dried plums. They are high in fiber and rich in potassium. They are famously known as a natural laxative and good for treating constipation.
Prunes are very sweet, sticky and chewy.
In France (where I live) they are used in preparing both sweet and savory dishes. You can also eat prunes alone as a snack.
How do you pit prunes?
The easiest way to pit a prune is to use a small paring knife. cut a line lengthwise down each prune. Gently press the prune, the pit should come out by itself, if not, gently pull the prune open and remove the pit. You can also buy pre-pitted prunes which makes prep time go much faster.
Can you reheat bacon wrapped prunes?
Yes! This bacon appetizer can be stored in the refrigerator and reheated for later use. You can also skip the reheating part and eat them cold (or at room temperature).
So, without any further ado, here is the recipe for a super easy French 2 ingredient appetizer that will also help with your constipation! 😉
