California Prunes are the not-so-secret ingredient that make everything from appetizers and salads to entrees and desserts irresistible – and they’re good for you, too.

As a premium dried fruit, California Prunes are underestimated for their delicious flavor and versatility. Add them to any recipe that uses dried fruits or that would benefit from their natural sweetness, with deep flavor notes and chewy texture. Think baked goods, chocolate desserts, even rice dishes, roasted vegetables, meat stews – and get a boost of flavor and nutrition.
