Prunes, dried - A prune is a dried plum. Prunes are very high in iron and make a good sweet snack. This dried fruit can be cooked (stewed prunes) or added to cakes, puddings or used for a stuffing in meat dishes.
California grows 99% of all the prunes consumed in the United States and 70% of the prunes consumed world-wide.
Prunes are available in cello bags, cans or in bulk in most grocery stores.
