Prunes are the Cinderella of dried fruit-dom, rising from dowdy digestive aid to a superfood superstar that's capable of combatting heart disease, cancer, and sagging skin-and for their enchanting flavor.
All prunes start as fresh plums that are picked when ripe and then dried to remove the moisture, leaving the fruit more portable and less prone to spoilage. Here the plums are pitted first, for easier snacking or using in baking, either diced, sliced, or pureed to a paste; prunes can also shake up smoothies and your morning oatmeal.
While prunes have long been reputed for being a potent digestive aid, thanks to their high fiber and other nutrients, they are much more than just a remedy for constipation. Turns out prunes just might top the list of all foods as a source of antioxidants, beating out even blueberries at being a powerful ally in preventing premature aging, heart disease, and certain kinds of cancer. Meet your new favorite superfood.
