Many people get confused on the matter of dried plums and prunes, but the truth is that these are two ways to name the same product. The term ‘prune’ is getting less popular these days because it has some negative associations for many people due to its use in slang. However, it’s still used to name a particular plum species called prune. There are dozens of plum fruits types cultivated all over the planet, and once they are dehydrated, all of them can be called dried plums and used in recipes requiring prunes.

Dried Prunes Benefit for Diet

Organic dried plums are great for your health and especially digestion. They’ve been used for centuries as a natural way to fight constipation. Dried plum baby food has an overall strengthening effect on your beloved child as it’s filled with nutrients and helps their digestive tract.

Antioxidants in organic dried plums are a great booster for your general well-being. They strengthen your body’s natural defenses reducing the risk of various health problems.

Note that even your dog can eat dried plums. However, both babies and pets should be given pitted fruits only. Also, don’t forget that you should start babies on solid foods just after they are six months old.

Organic Dried Plums: Nutrition

Snacking on 5-6 dried plums will give you a considerable boost of vitamin K and potassium. The fruit also contains significant amounts of:

  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Copper
  • Manganese
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C

Organic dried plums are also rich in fiber, which is the reason why they are so good for digestion.

Vegans should eat them regularly as it’s a plant food containing iron and vitamin C to help your body absorb it better. Athletes and bodybuilders can use naturally sweet dried plums to improve the taste of protein smoothies.

Dried Plums Recipes and Storage Guide

There is a variety of dried plum recipes available in almost every culture as this fruit is prevalent and grows all over the planet. The healthiest way to enjoy them is to add organic dried plums to your cereal, granola, or smoothie. You should also try dried plum tea as it’s delicious.

A dry plum cake would be a perfect way to make an impression at a party as the fruit’s natural flavor makes it great for desserts. You also need to make some dried plum sauce, which can be served with a variety of vegan and non-vegan foods.

Organic Dried Plums from Food To Live must be stored in a cool, dry place, within an airtight container. If you keep them in the fridge, you’ll be able to extend the product’s shelf life to its maximum.

Vegan German Plums Cake

Vegan German Plums Cake

Ingredients:

WET INGREDIENTS:

  • 240 ml / 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 4 tbsp / 1⁄4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 60 ml / 1⁄4 cup melted mild coconut oil
  • 1⁄2 tsp bitter almond essence
  • 125 g / 1⁄2 cup + 2 tbsp caster sugar

 

DRY INGREDIENTS (GLUTEN-FREE VERSION):

  • 195 g / 1,1⁄2 cup + 2 tbsp buckwheat flour
  • 20 g / 2 tbsp cornflour / corn starch
  • 80 g / 3⁄4 cup finely ground almonds (or almond meal)
  • 1 tsp gluten-free certified baking soda
  • 1⁄2 tsp gluten-free certified baking powder

 

DRY INGREDIENTS (REGULAR VERSION):

  • 220 g / 2 cups all purpose white flour
  • 80 g / 3⁄4 cup finely ground almonds (or almond meal)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1⁄2 tsp baking powder

 

OTHER INGREDIENTS:

  • 3-5 dried plums, cut into 6 slices or halves
  • 2 tsp icing sugar, to decorate (optional)

 

Method:
1. Heat up the oven to 170° C (or 150° C fan forced) / 340° F (300° F fan forced). Grease a baking tin with a very small amount of oil.
2. Mix all the wet ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Place a sieve over the bowl and sift through all the dry ingredients, except for the ground almonds.
If you are using wheat flour, be careful not to overmix the batter as the cake will be tough.
4. Fold in the finely ground almonds. Again, if you used regular wheat flour, take care to fold them in
very gently or else the cake will be tough.
5. Transfer the batter to a lightly greased baking tin. If your tin doesn’t have a removable bottom, it
may be a good idea to place 2 long and wide strips of baking paper down first so that you can use
them as handy tabs to make cake removal easier.
6. Decorate with plum segments or plum halves if your plums are little. To prevent plums from
sinking to the bottom, dip the side of the plum that will rest directly on the batter in a little bit of all
purpose flour (or cornstarch for the GF version) first before arranging on top of the cake.
7. Bake for about 55-60 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean and the top is nicely browned.
8. Once cool, remove from the tin, sprinkle the top of the cake with a little bit of icing sugar and
perhaps a dusting of ground cinnamon too, if you like.

Enjoy!!!

  1. 1 out of 5 Warning label states toxic chemicals.

    What exact toxic chemicals are in the USDA organic prunes that need the warning label that the product contains chemicals known to cause cancer and other harm? We will return the product, obviously unsafe to be fed to the baby.

    • Hello,
      We understand your concerned about the Prop65 cancer warning label. We have to comply with the California Proposition 65 rule. We have added a warning statement to any product that was part of litigation based on the Prop 65 rule. Even though our products don’t contain any chemical elements that in fact pose any health risk, we prefer to post a warning to avoid any litigations.

    • Hello,

      We understand where you are coming from. Our product doesn’t contain any chemicals as its 100% Organic, however, we do have to comply with the California Proposition 65 rule. We have added a warning statement to any product that was part of litigation based on the Prop 65 rule. Even though our products don’t contain any chemical elements that in fact pose any health risk, we prefer to post a warning to avoid any litigations. You can read more about this topic here: http://prop65scam.com/. Most of the companies who are selling superfoods have the same warnings on their sites.

      It is done to protect us against lawsuits as it is very costly (millions $) to defend a position in a court. We prefer to remove any litigation risk by putting a label on, even though our products are 100% safe.

    I’m very happy with these prunes. They are moist and delicious. I also bought them for two grandbabies for their moms to cook with water to use as nutritious baby food.
