Prunes have gotten a bit of a bad rap. They tend to be associated with old people and remedies for intestinal problems. But really they’re quite delicious and deserve some respect. Maybe that’s why they’re being called “dried plums” now. The first time I heard that I was like, “Wait, isn’t that a prune?”. Personally, I’ve always liked prunes. My poor brother had lots of health issues, so had to eat some everyday as a child. I loved it because there was always a bag of prunes in the cupboard for me to snack on.
