Here is a recipe that I love and that I have discovered thanks to the maternal grandmother of Sir. Prunes and hold candied in a syrup of wine with spices can you imagine ?! The result : prunes fluffy to perfection and melted in the mouth with a syrup to fall…. to eat without moderation with the cottage cheese, the cottage cheese or just like that !
Has made with the best prunes you can find, and a good red wine because it makes all the difference !
