Melinda’s Drunken Prunes
The amount of sugar will vary based on personal preference. I suggest starting with the smaller quantity and then adjusting after a month. Once you find your “sweet spot” you can put all the sugar in at the beginning.
plus up to 1/3 cup more based on taste
Place prunes in a one quart glass jar.
Add 1/3 cup sugar.
Rotate the jar several times daily until the sugar dissolves.
Store the prunes in a cool spot out of direct sunlight.
After one month taste and add additional sugar to taste.
Allow the prunes to age for at least four months total before serving.
Serve the prunes individually in shot glasses with a toothpick. Pour some of the grappa over the prunes.
Nibble on the prunes holding them with the toothpick and sip the prune-infused grappa, preferably while playing canasta.
