I’ve been on a dried fruit + whole grain kick lately so I was intrigued when a box of Sunsweet Plum Amazins showed up on my doorstep. These diced dried plums (formally known as prunes) have 50% more fiber than raisins and dried cranberries. And since they also have less sugars, they are not overally sweet – in a good way – as they don’t overwhelm a dish. I threw a good handful into a pot of brown jasmine rice as it cooked and came up with this recipe. At first, I was going for some type of pilaf but after adding in almonds and cinnamon, I decide this would make a tasty morning dish – after adding in pears with a drizzle of honey. And as I’ve posted before, why not try other grains besides oatmeal for breakfast?
Have you tried Plum Amazins yet? What is your favorite dried fruit and/or recipe you use it in?
