As mentioned in my last post, I had made Hungarian Lekvar for making the Hungarian Kipfels. Lekvar is a jam, usually made with dried apricots or prunes and I had used it as a filling for the kipfels. I made the jam with dried prunes and the taste was excellent. After using some for the kipfels, I used the remaining to serve with plain bread. If you like prunes, then go ahead and make this easy jam and enjoy..
Need To Have
- Dried Prunes - 20
- Water - 2/3 cup
- Granulated Sugar - 1/4 cup
Original Recipe here
Take the prunes and the water in a pan, bring it to a boil and simmer till the prunes become soft and all the water is gone.
Cool and grind the cooked prunes. Then put it back on the stove along with the sugar.
Keep stirring on low to medium heat, till it comes to a jam consistency. Remove, cool and serve.
After mixing in the sugar, you can taste and add more if needed, 1/4 cup was enough for us.
