The stuffed Prunes of Agen (Pruneaux d’Agen Fourrés) are a classic holiday delicacy, ranking as one of the most prestigious gifts in France.
Splendid, full-bodied Agen Prunes are pitted, dried, gently rehydrated, and—delight of delights—filled generously with a smooth purée of their own fruit, delicately flavored with lemon peel and vanilla. Perfect as a sweet foil to cooked game, as a succulent side to foie gras, or served with Armagnac or Banyuls wine at the end of a meal. These prunes also pair beautifully with a cup of Mariage Frères tea for an afternoon treat.
Each round tin contains 12 prunes filled with prune mousse.
