Stewed Prunes & Apricots--A Failure

You may have seen a post about me possibly making stewed prune and apricots. Well I bought the prunes and apricots from Trader Joe's as I said I probably would. Today, Friday, I decided to attempt to make it----I threw the bag of prunes and the bag of apricots in a pot and covered them with water--added some lemon and cinnamon powder (didn't have cinnamon sticks). Brought everything to a boil-lowered the heat to allow to simmer.

Sounds good so far-right? Well it would have been if I hadn't fallen asleep. I woke up just in time to turn it off and stop the pot itself from burning!! Whew---- Usually my cat informs me very loudly if something is wrong in the kitchen--she also was sound asleep--

Well-I did save it-kind of--a lot of it looks more like prune butter--and it does taste good--NOW I have to figure out what I can concoct to use it all up.

I do love Yogurt and always loved Prune Whip on the bottom that you had to stir up--But whole milk yogurt makes my blood sugar go way up--maybe I can find this in the stores or order it online Almond Dream Plain Non Dairy Yogurt . I'll just stir some into the plain almond milk yogurt--- or

how about mini fillo shells that already come pre-baked! - just fill them up and add some whipped cream which I always have in the house anyway!!

Hum--another thought--make some bow tie noodle--add butter--add some of the mixture--I probably would like it.

Do you have any other suggestions for me? I have about 2 pounds of the stuff-and my cat does not like it!!

Please put your suggestions in the comment box below--just one thing--I refuse to throw it out!!

Oh my goodness, I'm so glad you woke up in time to prevent a house fire.
After my first son was born and I was very sleep deprived. I placed a bottle in a pan of water to heat (back in the day). I sat down in a chair at the table holding my son waiting for the bottle to heat. I awoke to a kitchen full of rolling black smoke and a really awful smell. The water had boiled away and the plastic bottle had melted and the milk was burning in with the plastic bottle. I had to toss the whole mess out and start over. I learned not to sit down while waiting for a bottle to heat in the middle of the hight again.
Have a great week and I'll see you on Facebook.

I, too am very glad it did not burn. The mini fillo shells sound like a great idea! Maybe over biscuits like a sweet fruit gravy or see if you can freeze it as eating to much at once wouldn't be nice on your stomach.
