Prunes With Almonds and Raisins


  • 1 lb. (450 gr.) soft prunes, pitted
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • ½ Cup sugar
  • 2 oz. (50 gr.) each peeled chopped almonds and seedless raisins
  • 1 ½ t cinnamon
  • 3 whole cloves

In a saucepan mix the prunes, almonds, raisins, cloves, wine, cinnamon and sugar.

Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring regularly. Reduce the flame and continue cooking and stirring until the mixture thickens.

Remove the cloves and transfer the other ingredients to a medium sized dessert dish.

Place the dish in the center of the table and serve hot with small dessert spoons so that each guest may help him or herself. Ideally served with mint tea or strong Turkish coffee.
