Prunes are a misunderstood food and could be forgiven for suffering an identity crisis. Indeed they arenít the sexiest or most glamorous of fruits and is often associated with constipation relief or given to the elderly or infirmed.
Itís time this misconception is put to bed, as itís one of the most delicious super-foods around. The humble prune is packed full of healthy, nutritious goodness, being high in antioxidants, fibre and helps lower cholesterol and yes ... it does help keep you regular!
The combination of spices and orange I used in this recipe helps fool the brain into believing the prunes have been soaked in liquor. Of course you can add alcohol to taste, however I wanted to keep this dessert completely low in fat and calories.
