1. Place dried plums (prunes) and any other dried fruit you like such as apples, peaches, or cranberries in saucepan with just enough water to cover. Add five cloves and a cinnamon stick if you like.
2. Simmer until soft, but not falling apart. If you have time, there is no need even to cook--just set it aside for 12 hours.
3. Serve with whole-milk yoghurt, unflavored, or whipped cream if you can. Voila! Your marvelous, healthy offering is done.
