I made stewed prunes – really easy and not just a constipation cure but also super tasty. And no, I did not just tell my 3000+ (yeah I’m bragging) followers I’m constipated though I don’t know how you can not be in Japan, consuming all that white rice, noodles and “bread” everyday. Thankfully, I don’t follow that diet.
1 bag of prunes
1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
Place prunes, lemon half and maple syrup in a small pot and cover with water.
Bring to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes.
It’s done when you want it to be or when the water has thickened into a syrup – though it will continue to thicken once refrigerated.
Serve with granola and/or yogurt.
PS I don’t know if I should be proud or embarrassed of my momma’s pop-culture savviness (see below).
