The wild prune trees around here don’t have fruit every year and hardly any this year, but the tree we got from the Nicks about 16 years ago always has lots of delicious prunes.

Too many to eat all at once, so we made a couple batches of prune marmalade.

Wash and pit the prunes.

Bring to boil with tiny amount of water in the bottom. Boil about a half an hour until mushy.

Add sweetener if necessary and enjoy – like topping off a bowl of oatmeal porridge.

Or can or freeze for winter use.
