Tkemali from prunes

Prune sauce has beneficial properties. After all, prunes help our gastrointestinal tract and are even a laxative. Fragrant and sweet tkemali made from prunes will help neutralize cholesterol in the body.

Well, its great taste goes perfectly with meat, poultry and some fish! Let’s find out how to make prune sauce for the winter at home

What utensils will you need?

To prevent the sauce from splashing on your stove during cooking, choose a pan with high walls and always a thick bottom. This will help prevent prune tkemali from burning.

A blender or sieve is also useful to give a homogeneous mass to the sauce. If you plan to make prune sauce for the winter, then prepare pre-sterilized jars with tin lids.

And a special seaming machine. A silicone spatula won’t hurt either; it’s convenient for rubbing the sauce through a sieve and stirring it while cooking.
