Method

Soak in water for six hours or so some prunes—one pound would do for four people. Cook them in water (just enough to cover them, adding more if necessary) till they are soft and well swollen. Add a handful of sugar. Remove the prunes, remove the stones out of the prunes and mash the prunes through a hair sieve. Meanwhile the juice is reducing slowly to a thick syrup; add then a glass of port wine, and to the purée obtained add, stirring well, the reduced juice till the proper consistency, that of marmalade, is obtained. Serve very cold with or without cream.
