    Hoo HA! It all caramellises into a fantastic sauce! I used apricots as that was all I had and it was a big unctuous hit. So quick to do as well. A keeper.

    Lovely gooey and quite sweet recipe that appeals to my toddler. Thanks

    This seems to work well for adults and children: the sweetness of the fruit and pork blends nicely in the cooking. Leave the prunes in large-ish chunks so you can fish them out if you meet a refusal to eat "those brown squashy things".
