- 1 to 1½ pounds large whole prunes
- 1 small lemon halved, or ½ a large one cut in half again
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup or brown sugar, to taste
Place the prunes and lemon in a cook pot over medium-high heat.
Add maple syrup and enough water to just cover the fruit. Bring to a boil.
Cover and simmer gently for about 30-35 minutes.
Turn the prunes often and add water if they look too dry. The liquid will be syrupy and the prunes will have softened and swelled up when ready.
Remove from the heat and let the prunes cool.
Transfer to a container. You can store them in a refrigerator for up to a week, Eat them as is, or with a dollop of Greek yogurt.
