    My daughter`s prune tree is fulllllllll of little prunes and thy are just about ripe( yep, even in northern ontario...lol)....does anyone know what i can do with them....maybe a recipe of jam or jelly, or maybe a website. Thy are quite small, red when ripe and a bit tart. Don`t want them to go to waste, although someone she knows collects a lot of them to make liqueur....

    Mais Oui!! En anglais .... Prunes are what you have after you dry up the plums a little. So sorry, I hadn't thought of the french influence! :)

    It's been years since I made it. Yes, it would have been made with certo. There's some very delicious desserts (coffee cake or flan like) that use plums.

    There is such a thing as a prune-plums. We had a tree at one point, and they may have been plums, but when dried, they were prunes. Same thing - just one was dried and one was fresh.
