Hi! Thank you for stopping by to watch me, Leah, cook kosher. I've been the owner operator of my boutique catering firm in Seattle, Leah's Catering, for the past 14 years.
Prune Lekvar is available in bulk quantities by special order at the bakery supply, in 50 pound buckets. Hmm, sort of a lot since it isn't the best selling hamentachen filling. But, it is really easy to make and quite tasty. I buy the prunes at the big box retailer and usually cook up a batch large enough for a few hundred hamentachen. This week, I started with a more modest amount of prunes as a test for the website. As I look at the recipe, it strikes me that the same ingredients would make an excellent dried fig or date filling. I'll have to try that next week and see what happens.

Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan with a heavy bottom. If your fruit feels really dry, add 1/4 cup water. Cook over medium low heat until the prunes break down a bit.
Remove from heat and let cool a little. Add to food processor and blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
