Amazing Plum Amazins Giveaway!

Plum AmazinsYou mean you haven’t tried Plum Amazins yet? Score some in our Amazing Plum Amazins Giveaway!

Ten Appetite for Health friends will win Plum Amazins plus the entire 2012 season of America’s Test Kitchen on DVD and its accompanying cookbook (a $75 value)! Entry details below…

If  you like to cook (or know someone who does), you need to get in on our Amazing Plum Amazins giveaway, pronto! Not only are these diced, dried plums amazingly tasty, but this prize comes with a the 2012 cookbook and DVD from America’s Test Kitchen.

I like pretty much all types of dried fruit, and  Sunsweet Plum Amazins are no exception. With 50% more fiber and half the sugar of raisins, they’re a nice change of pace, so if you haven’t tried them, give them a whirl. If you have, my guess is that you haven’t cooked with them. I don’t blame you, since mine rarely find their way into a recipe either—I just like eating them for a snack or sprinkling them on yogurt or oatmeal. But, dried fruit is a great ingredient in recipes either sweet or savory, and we have a recipe to prove it! This is a nice, seasonal stuffing recipe that’s taken up a notch with lots of fruit. It’s not your typical fowl filler. Check it out below (it looks pretty tasty, right)?

Country Sausage, Apple and Sunsweet Cherry Stuffing

  • 1 lb. Italian-style chicken or turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 1 1/2 yellow onions, dicedPlum Amazins Stuffing
  • 5 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup Sunsweet Cherries
  • 1 cup Sunsweet Plum Amazins
  • 3/4 cup Sunsweet Prune Juice
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped fine
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 5 cups French bread, cubed and dried

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a skillet, brown the sausage, remove excess fat and add the vegetables and garlic. Cook briefly, about 2 minutes, set aside. Put the cherries and Plum Amazins in a pan with the prune juice, bring to a boil, set aside. Put the bread cubes, sausage, vegetables, apples and parsley in a large bowl, season with salt and pepper. Whisk eggs and chicken broth together and pour over the bread mixture, stirring until everything is well distributed. Drain cherries and Plum Amazins, and add to the stuffing mixture, tossing again. If the mixture is too dry, add more broth, 1/4 cup at a time. Place in a lightly greased 9×13-inch pan and cover with foil. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes, remove foil and bake 10 minutes to crisp. Serve warm.

    I would love to win this package and already was a fan of you and sunsweet! I use my plum amazins just by themselves as a healthy snack! As a diabetic, I love portable healthy fruit snacks that are good for me, and along with raisins, these are my go to!!!!!

  2. Jim K. says

    I got a sample of “Plum Amazins” from their facebook page. They’re great as a snack. In addition, I watch America’s Test Kitchen on Saturday mornings whenever I get the chance. They give a pretty good analysis of different dishes and a great alternative to make them even better on your own. To get a copy of their cookbook would be great to get for future use.

  3. says

    I would use half in a muffin mix and then the other half in some stuffing. I love when good healthy foods have already been diced so I can quickly add them into dishes. America’s Test Kitchen are a great company and do amazing work. I would love to have their cookbook. Takes the guesswork out of recipes. Thanks.

  4. Danielle W. says

    I would love to add Plum Amazins to oatmeal cookies in place of raisins, to my morning oatmeal, and to homemade granola or trail mix!

  5. says

    I just recently tried Plum Amazins for the first time recently. I can think of many ways to use these; breads, upside-down cakes or salads.

  6. Patricia Evans says

    I would use Plum Amazins in cookies, muffins, cereal, crisps and cobbers–anything I might use raisins in. They sound delicious!

  7. Heather A says

    I would give them to my mother (she LOVES plums, dried or otherwise!) and together we’d either eat them or use them in some kind of recipe. I have a recipe for cranberry sauce that these would work well in!

  8. Samantha Daleo says

    I think I will try them first in a batch of cookies or a loaf..maybe mixed into my Banana Bread loaf…that sounds yummy,

  9. Sheryl Edwards says

    I would use Plum Amazins to mix with Greek Yogurt as a healthy snack! I also think they would taste great in a sauce with a pork loin roast! I would also use them in salads.
    I love watching America’s Test Kitchen! How fabulous it would be to have this cookbook!!!

  10. Elizabeth Williams says

    I would snack on them, or put them in my yogurt. And I LOVE America’s Test Kitchen! It’s my favorite show and I already have one of their cookbooks. They are fantastic.

  11. Sena C. says

    I would probably eat them alone at first….until I figured out else I can do with them. They look delicious!

  12. thetastycompanionK says

    I’m going to try my Plum Amazins instead of raisins in my special gluten-free Meusli cookies!

  13. Kristin Troska says

    like and like. wonder if Plum Amazons would be good in my hot oat breakfast cereal? thanks for the chance to win. Happy Thanksgiving.

    I would love to stew these prunes and eat with chicken. I have a wonderful recipe that incorporates prunes…yum!

  15. Marla says

    I want to eat them right out of the package as a snack. So I hope I win. I need some healthy snacks with the holidays approaching.

  16. Ann says

    After weeks of therapy my ortho doc tells me this morning that I am good to go…get out and walk again, 20 minutes every day. I want to use this package on my walks as energy snacks.

  17. Denise Fedor says

    If I win I would eat all of the Plum Amazins and then decide what to make with them! Quess I would have to buy MORE!

  18. says

    I love Sunsweet and have been eating them for several years. I throw them into cakes, rehydrate them for fried fruit pies, add them to meat entrees and on and on. I have logged into their facebook page and liked it. I am also a fan of this site and I receive the newsletters.

  19. Lori Williams says

    I like both on Facebook and I get your newsletter. I would have these as a good healthy snack that I could nibble on while I am cooking and baking for the holidays.

  20. Bonnie K says

    I would love to win this package. I’d probably eat the plums straight from the bag. I would also cut them up into a bowl of greek yogurt, add them to a bowl of oatmeal, a cobbler, and/or a savory meat casserole.

  21. says

    I like to snack on plums like crazy. To me, it is almost like eating grapes but only its bigger, more plump, a lot more tastier, and oh so nutritious. I even treat prunes & raisins the same way too, I like to snack on them straight just the way they are. Sometimes, I like to use them in recipes that calls for them, and/or, I simply like to add them with other foods to my preference.

  22. Lorie McGuire says

    I would add these to a salad of apples and celery and use these instead of raisins. I would also add some pecans or walnuts.

  23. Anh Thu Truong says

    Shared 7 Ways to Outsmart Overeating & Holiday Weight Gain on FB. I like to eat them the way they are or would add to baked goods.

  24. Diana R says

    I receive the AFH e-newsletter and like both AFH and Sunsweet on fb.
    I use them to make my own trail mix with other dried fruit, seeds and nuts, but I’ve been thinking of making granola with them.

  25. leda says

    I would put them in my cranberry sauce at the holidays (and use less sugar that way). Everyday use would definitely be the oatmeal/yogurt topper route or as a quick snack that’s easy to grab on the go.

  26. jennifer woosley says

    If I won I would put them in my cereal. I need to make my fiber one cereal more interesting!

  27. Terri David says

    I’d use them on salad, in my cereal, and eat them as snacks. Would hope to learn new ways to use them from the cook book I’d win.

  28. Leighton VanSickel says

    won “plumsweets” earlier in the year, and my 86 y/o mother=in=law tried them, and now, she can’t be without them in her home !! She has gotten her friends started on them, as well. I know she would love these, too !!

  29. Megan Steffel says

    I would use them in so many ways! I would definitely have to experiment because I have never tried a plum before (I know- shocking!).

    I think in oatmeal, reduced in sugar to make a syrup for pancakes, waffles, etc, fruit cake, breakfast cookies, in a fall/winter stew…

    the possibilities are endless!

    BTW- I liked & subscribed!
