The flavor of prunes can be described as non-characterizing. That is, prunes do not impart a flavor but rather enhance and round out other food flavors in a recipe or formulation.

This makes prunes the perfect ingredient for complete flavor systems whether sweet or savory sauces, marinades or rubs. Available as whole prunes, paste, purees, powders and juice concentrates, prunes can be used in off-the-shelf or from-scratch sauces, marinades and rubs.
