This recipe is clearly from the years before Metamucil. I remember days in the old house on Maher Ave, sitting at the counter, being fed prunes against my will. I too have put those little packaged prunes into my children's lunch boxes. We've settled on the chewable fiber supplements. But as you will see from this simple recipe was meant to get your G.I. motor running fast! This recipe does not deserve a bon appetit either!
Prunes (credited to a Mr. Charles Simmons)
Buy large pitted prunes. Cook in strong hot coffee. Let cool in coffee.
(The recipe says nothing more. I will let my readers decide for themselves!)
