Hi there a recipe calls for 'no soak prunes'. Can anyone tell me what no-soak prunes are? All packets of prunes I have seen in any supermarket are the same and nowhere on the packets does it say you have to soak them. So I don't really understand. Those ready-to-eat prunes - do people usually soak them? Or are the normal ones you find in the shops the 'no-soak' ones? I don't know why the recipe doesn't say prunes as it seems there is only one type. Really confused. hope you can help.

Any prune in the supermarket is fine. The no soaking prunes are just less dehydrated than the standard dried prune. But any dried prune can be eaten dried. I don’t know where you are at, but in the US, Whole Foods sell No Soak prunes. But really you can use a regular prune.

Thank you. I am in the UK. I did see some no soak ones on amazon and thought they were too expensive. But this is really useful, thank you.
