The stuffed Prunes of Agen (Pruneaux d’Agen Fourrés Saveur Armagnac) from France are a classic holiday delicacy revered by prune lovers all over Europe. Tender, splendid, full-bodied Agen Prunes are de-pitted and filled generously with a smooth purée of their own fruit, which is sweetened and delicately flavored with Armagnac.
These are perfect as a sweet foil to accompany cooked game or equally delicious to serve with an Armagnac or Banyuls wine at the end of a meal. Rich caramel notes balanced by a touched of acidity make these an unforgettable accompaniment to mold-ripened cheeses, such as Epoisses, Chevrot and Fourme d'Ambert. They also pair quite nicely with a cup of Mariage Frères tea for an afternoon treat.
