Pecan Stuffed Prunes with Whipped CreamFebruary 28th, 2015 in Desserts by Julia Volhina
For some weird reason this dessert is called “Snow White and Seven Dwarfs” in Ukraine. But it doesn’t make its taste any less than awesome: sourish prunes, stuffed with nuts on a bed of fluffy whipped cream.
Prunes can be stuffed in advance, in fact nuts will taste even better after few hours in prunes. And then whip cream and assemble dessert right before serving it.
By the way, you can use other nuts instead of pecans, for example walnuts or almonds, whatever you like more.
Beet Salad with Prunes and WalnutsNovember 13th, 2010 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Beet salad with prunes, walnuts and onions dressed up with mayo or sour cream or both is one of the traditional salads of ukrainian cuisine.
Also, this dish is one of the not many dishes which uses beets as a main ingredient.
It is very important to use sweet and rich red color beets for this salad. So, when buying beets scratch their skin with a nail: dark red pulp under skin is a sign of good beet, not pink and not white.
It is also important to use good quality walnuts; taste before you buy them: old walnuts can be bitter and using such will make you salad taste bitter as well.
