Prunes

Prunes may be cooked according to the preceding recipe, or they may be washed and soaked over night and used without cooking.

Prune Soufflé

Wash and soak a half pound of prunes over night. Next morning press them through a colander. Add four tablespoonfuls of sugar and then fold in the well beaten whites of four eggs. Turn this into a baking-dish and bake in a quick oven ten minutes. Serve at once.

Prune Jelly

Wash and soak a pound of prunes over night. Next morning, press them through a colander. Add the juice of two lemons and one cup of powdered sugar. Cover a half box of vegetable gelatin with a pint of water and soak thirty minutes. Add one pint of boiling water and the prunes. Bring to boiling-point, and strain at once into a mould. Serve cold with dairy or nut cream.
