Very large and moist unpitted (stone in) pruneaux d’Agen.
These prunes are calibre “super geant” and particularly large and very moist. If you ever have tried stuffed Agen prunes (pruneaux fourres), our prunes are quite similar in taste and texture (especially if you soak them first).
Selected and packaged by Maison Cotolot who have been preparing Agen prunes since 1906.
We receive countless re-orders for these prunes and they are the best we have tried.
We’ve also tried to answer a few questions we are sometimes asked below!
Agen Prunes are the semi dried version of plums grown in and around the town of Agen in South West France. These plums are dark purple, the variety is called “Ente” and grown mainly in the Lot-et-Garonne region.
We’ve linked to an interesting read about The Prune Route Of France on a lovely Francophile website called “The Good Life in France, Everything You Want To Know Abut France And More”, which is really a must for anyone keen on French food and things French!
As the name implies! Agen prunes are grown around the town of Agen in the Lot-Et Garonne region of France, an area very rich in plum trees.
Agen prunes are partially dried Ente plums. The texture is pleasantly chewy. In taste they strike a really enjoyable balance between sweet and tart.
You can also soak your agen prunes in water (or brandy!) to soften them further. If you do this, the prunes will macerate in the liquid and impart their flavour to it and the resulting prune juice is delicious!
Agen prunes contain a vast array of different minerals and vitamins and are widely regarded as having strong anti-oxidant properties. They are also notorious for aiding in digestion.
A wonderful ingredient, it’s not always obvious how best to use Agen prunes, so we’ve linked to a few recipes below for you to try!
