I love prunes and prune juice! They both are the most tastiest way to get the bowels moving naturally in the right direction again without having to mess with medications. I love to eat them when they are moist or when they are stewed....I always asked for stewed prunes in the hospital after giving birth. My oldest daughter did the same after she had a baby!
Never give it to a baby or young child (check with pediatrician), but my girls love eating them and always have since they were about 4 years old I think.
The "dried" prunes I've had were always still a bit moist, but they would have made the juice from the ones they did not make into "dried" prunes. Good topic for you to research.
