The Nut Market's quality Pitted Prunes start out with sweet plums picked off the tree at the peak of their ripeness. They are hot-air dried then lightly water steamed to soften during the drying process, this way they aren’t completely dried out and retain some moisture. This makes for juicy and sweet prunes, ideal for both cooking and snacking! Our delicious pitted prunes contain no pits.
Not only do prunes taste great, but they’re also very healthy - naturally fat free and high in potassium and fibre. And these pitted prunes are so sweet, you’d never guess that these wrinkly treats have no sugar added!

Fun With Prunes? Really! Pitted Prunes are frequently eaten plain, straight out of the bag, but try these following ideas to mix up your prune-y routine.
Breakfast: Stir chopped prunes into your morning oatmeal, muesli or blend them in your smoothie!
Lunch: The sweetest little school lunch box addition! Or use them in home-baked cakes and muffins.
Side Dishes: Chopped up prunes are tasty in couscous or quinoa, and add a touch of texture and flavour. You can also wrap pitted prunes in prosciutto and bake for several minutes for a deceptively easy, but fancy, appetiser!
Meats: Marinade and roast any meat with prunes to retain the meat’s moisture and add a natural sweetness, depth and complexity. Prunes also make a lovely base for sauces and stuffing.
Dessert: Add chopped prunes to cakes and muffins for sweetness and texture, or stew prunes to make a sauce that complements everything from ice cream to shortcakes. Prunes can be soaked in hot water for a few minutes, or lightly stewed for compote.
