A prune is a dried fruit of various plum species. The fresh fruit looks like a normal plum, but has an oval shape, similar to an apricot. When dried it is wrinkly in texture, and chewy on the inside.

Prunes

Prunes are used in cooking both sweet and savoury dishes. Stewed prunes, a compote, are a dessert. Prunes are a frequent ingredient in North African tagines. Perhaps the best known gastronomic prunes are those of Agen (pruneaux d'Agen). Prunes are used frequently in Tzimmes, a traditional Jewish dish in which the principal ingredient is diced or sliced carrots; and in traditional Norwegian fruktsuppe.
