Prunes are wonderful to keep your system moving, and any fruit should be eaten prior to your usual breakfast.
Yesterday, I needed to boil more prunes. My husband walked by the stove and mentioned that the prunes were not boiling yet. I was busy at the computer and meant to set my oven timer for five minutes. (Should have but didn’t.)
Fully engrossed in reading my e-mail, it wasn’t until the odor of burnt prunes filled the room that I realized what had happened. And I really loved that kettle too! - - It was ruined !!
After mentally beating myself up, I not so quickly, but finally I forgave myself. You are aware that it is not healthy to hold grudges even against yourself ? . . . and God forgave me too!
My husband knows not to speak of this again, because at times he too is guilty of burning something on the stove.
So I have found a new and better way to plump my daily prunes. Here follows the recipe!
No Cook Prunes - - the easy way
Cover prunes with boiling water, place the lid on the kettle, and allow them to set until they are cool in the pan. This long soak will cause them to plump up nicely.
