save them for colder weather and make fruit compote, with dried apricots, apples, prunes etc. simmered in a liquid to rehydrate, I don't have a recipe but there are some out there, probably could do it in the crockpot too, serve with whipped "cream" or ice"cream"

You got me on this one, we just eat em straight cuz we like em! Or use them in food bar stuff, like with nuts and seeds.

Didn't somebody wrap prunes in bacon and broil? Or was that something else?

Pork tenderloin stuffed with prunes

Stick a long thin knife through the pork tenderloin to make a cavity and stuff full of prunes. Season outside with salt, pepper, and dust with rice flour.

Brown on all sides in olive oil in a very hot pan.

Set pork aside and add 1 tablespoon butter and 1 chopped onion to the pan.

Saute until onions are golden and translucent and stir in 1 teaspoon sage.

De-glaze the pan with 1 cup apple cider, scraping up all the browned bits, throw in a handful of prunes, grate in the zest of 1/2 a lemon, return the pork and cover.

Cook just until the tenderloin is almost cooked through, a little pink is good.

Serve with mashed sweet potatoes and smothered greens.

You can always chop 'em up and put them in baking. Delicious in pierogies, too.

I think they wrapped them in priscutto (sp)?

Yep. That was me. I ate three of them this AM. Wrap each one with some prosciutto, stick with a toothpick and bake at 400 until crispy. I also do them on a skewer on the grill. You will thank me for this one. Just don't eat too many at one time :D
