What’s in your prune butter? Good prune butter is hard to find! Here’s an easy recipe with just two ingredients, prunes, of course and water. Perfect for Hamantashen cookie filling.
Makes about 4 1/2 cups of Prune Butter
1 pound organic dried pitted dried prunes
3 cups water
1. Place prunes in a 3.5 quart saucepan and add water to almost cover the fruit, about 1 cup. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and continue to cook until fruit is soft, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Remove from heat and puree fruit with a hand blender, food processor or blender. Be careful not to splatter, the fruit is hot. The hand blender is convenient because you can leave the fruit in the pot. The mixture should be very thick. Add remaining water, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring to incorporate with the hand mixer or blender. Return to the stove and cook another 5 minutes.
3. Remove from heat and let cool. Place in jars and refrigerate.
