A sweet vegan treat! The margarine used is pareve, meaning it contains no animal products, and can be found in groceries stocking kosher foods.

This was rich but great! we halved the recipe and needed to make our own 'stewed prunes' (dried prunes from the bulk section cooked in a little water on the stove until they fell apart) because we couldn't find organic stewed prunes at the store. My two year old LOVED this which I was thankful for because it can be tricky to find ways to keep different kinds of fruits and veggies in his diet. A really good flavor combo I would not have thought of normally. Read More

I made this because I had the ingredients and needed a dish for an impromptu pot luck. It was so good and there was none left. It went very well with the ham that was served. An unusual combination that really works. Read More

This is a wonderful recipe that I have made many times with requests from others for the recipe. I peel and then steam the sweet potatoes for quicker prep and less mess. I use organic dried prunes and stew them in water, then pour off the excess to use the prune juice. I mash the softened prunes with a masher or put them in the food processor briefly. I use a bit less butter and sometimes substitute a bit of stevia for some of the honey. This dish is equally delicious served hot or cold. When served cold, it tastes more like a dessert. Leftovers freeze well. This recipe is in my lifelong “go to”, tried and true file. Read More
