Prunes, also known as dried plums, make a tasty sweet treat, and have a variety of health benefits, some of which may come as a surprise to you. Most prunes come from California, where the fresh plums are grown in optimal sunshine and soil quality, leading to an exceptional fruit product. California prunes (aka the highest quality of dried plums) can be found under multiple labels at your favourite grocer and are relatively inexpensive.
