Sweet, Sweet Prunes

A few weekends back, our dance team went dancing in Bundaberg. Seven of us were billeted together and our hosts made us feel very welcome (we even had choccies on our pillow!). In the morning we were treated to a breakfast feast complete with prunes to go on our yogurt. I’m not the biggest prune fan, but these tasted amazing. Natasha shared her recipe with us – an old favourite from South Africa.
I made this for something sweet today 🙂 The photo looks gross, but that’s a whole lotta sweet goodness in that pot right there!

Natasha’s Prunes
500g prunes
3/4 cup water
2/3 cup vinegar
1/2 cup or less of sugar (I used a few drops of Stevia instead)
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp cinnamon (organic has 3x more flavour!)

Boil everything in a pot on the stove for 15 minutes with the lid on. Leave overnight.
