Plum Prosciutto Bites
- 20 dried plums (better known as prunes)
- 20 prosciutto slices (paper-thin)
- 20 toothpicks
- Wrap a paper-thin slice of prosciutto around each dried plum and secure with a toothpick. Place on a cookie sheet.
- Bake in a 400°F oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until the plums are soft and the prosciutto is crispy.
- Most of the fat will cook off, and you'll be left with a decadent-tasting treat that's sweet, savory, and healthy.
I got this from Men's Health Magazine. I should title this Prune Prosciutto Bites, but it might be ignored. Prunes contain high amounts of neochlorogenic and chlorogenic acids, antioxidants that are particularly effective at combating the "superoxide anion radical." This nasty free radical causes structural damage to your cells, and such damage is thought to be one of the primary causes of cancer. So try this recipe as a way to get your prunes!
