"Some recipes are best left with mom. This... this is terrible. Perhaps if you love prunes, or yearn for the 1950s to make a comeback, this is the dish for you. If you have a contemporary pallet, though, this is a dish best avoided. Certainly, there are better uses for prunes than this, and I feel, having had the dish myself, guests will be secretly let down rather than dazzled."
