Curried Prunes

Author Notes: Back in Feastivals' "catering days" my cousin and partner, Judy Kreloff, came up with these tasty morsels as a surprise addition to a cocktail buffet. They are also an amazing accompaniment to grilled or roasted pork, or meaty fish dishes.ChefJune

  • 5 boxes pitted prunes
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2-3 medium-sized onions, coarsely chopped
