How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small saucepan, combine the water, sugar, cinnamon stick and star anise and bring to a boil. Simmer the spiced sugar syrup over moderate heat for 15 minutes.

Step 2    

Discard the cinnamon stick and star anise. Off the heat, stir in the brandy and prunes. Let the brandied prunes stand at room temperature until they plump, at least 1 hour, but preferably overnight.

Step 3    

Just before serving, rewarm the prunes. Serve in bowls over spoonfuls of crème fraîche or ice cream.
