Walnut stuffed prunes is a simple and delectable dessert idea that takes no special skills and used to be part of all big celebrations when I was growing up. My grandma stuffed prunes with walnuts that she grew right in her front yard. I remember sitting with her on little chairs, next to makeshift table made of an upside down bucket and a wooden board. As a kid I loved that she made it to accommodate my size as a kid. With a bucket full of walnuts waiting to be cracked, little hammers in hands, we crushed the shells of the walnuts to reveal fresh kernel.

Every other one made it to the bowl, the rest were…well, lets just say – were missing in action. But t’was OK, there was a lot more where they came from.
Once we had the walnuts all ready, we would take our pre-soaked prunes and press a piece of walnut into the soft flesh of the prune. Now it was just minutes before we could enjoy them by pouring condensed milk on top in a lava-like fashion. Popping one after the other into the mouth, it’s so hard to stop eating them! Somehow the rather interesting combination of the prunes, walnuts & sweetened condensed milk, once combined makes into one grand combination. If you are like me and grew up eating this stuff, this post is to remind you to make it again 🙂 If you’ve never tried this, you should! They’re so addicting!
