Coufidou Agen Pitted Prunes - 225 gr/ 8 oz Agen, France

California is the source for most of the prunes in this country, but France is the home of the most splendid prune of all, the celebrated Pruneaux d'Agen. Special plum trees in the heart of orchard country in the Lot-et-Garonne region of southwestern France are cultivated exclusively for prune-making.

With their micro-thin skins, they are absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and just as good for snacking as they are for either sweet or savory dishes, like Bruce Aidells' and Denis Kelly's Braised Pork with Port and Prunes, or rich North African-style tagines, incorporating warm spices like cinnamon or allspice with prunes and meat, often lamb.

What's so special about prunes?!
These prunes come from plums that are a hybrid of a local fruit and the exotic damask plum, first brought to France from Syria in the 12th century. The plums are shaken from the trees, dried first in the sun and then finished in a barely warm oven. The result is a large, plump prune with a deep spicy aroma and rich, lovely flavor - a summer harvest that's ready to enjoy all winter long!

About the Producers
We think that Monsieur et Madame Raymond Cabos make the best Pruneaux d'Agen in France. They cultivate their own plums in orchards handed down through generations in Mirabel, the heart of prune country in southwestern France, and their staple product is perfect.

The Cabos are true artisans and their products are in high demand in France and throughout Europe; their supply is of course limited. At the fabulous but not-so-well-known Salon Fermier Paris food show - featuring products made and grown by the people selling them - there's always a crowd around their booth. After tasting their wares and hearing the passion in their voices, I understood why.
