|\N \N||Stephen Ceideburg|
|½ cup||Cold water|
|6 \N||Prunes, soaked, pitted and chopped|
|¼ cup||Slivered almonds|
|1 tablespoon||Chopped parsley|
Break 4 matzos into small pieces, add ½ a cup of cold water and leave them to soak it up. In 2 tablespoons schmaltz (chicken fat) cook 1 medium onion, finely chopped, until golden.
Meanwhile, squeeze excess water from the matzos and mix together the matzos, half a teaspoon salt, 6 soaked, pitted and chopped prunes, a dash of cinnamon, quarter of a cup of slivered almonds, and 2 eggs.
Mix well then turn into the pan of fried onions. Stir over moderate heat until the stuffing is light and fairly dry.
Let cool a little then add 1 tablespoon chopped parsley. Use mixture to stuff a large chicken and roast as usual.
