Organic pitted prunes, aka dried plums are exactly that – dried plums, usually from Europe that are also cultivated in parts of the US, such as California. Organic pitted prunes are extremely low in saturated fat, yet high in a number of valuable nutrients including fibre, natural fruit sugars, vitamins (such as vitamins A, C and K), minerals (e.g. potassium and iron), antioxidants and sorbitol, a mild colonic stimulant that has given the humble prune an unshakeable reputation as a natural remedy for constipation.
Organic pitted prunes make a decidedly sensible snack between meals, are utterly delicious chopped up into your preferred breakfast cereal and their intensely sweet flavour, rich colour and wonderfully chewy texture is a great addition to raw cakes, desserts and in particular, raw chocolate. Surprisingly, organic pitted prunes also provide a pleasant contrast in savoury dishes - our punchy pitted prune and avocado salad dressing below is the perfect example.
