Pluots

I bought a bag of dried Pluots, I like eating dried fruits . Any ideas what else to do with these? I did google but there doesn't seem to be many recipes using this fruit.

I would put them in anything that would use dried fruit. Fruit cake, what I call flapjack which is an oats & flour cake - I can post a recipe if you want.
There is also a savoury South African dish called bobotie that normally uses apricots - I reckon these would probably go nicely into that.
You could include them in scones and cookies.

I wonder if the dried ones taste better than the fresh. I was not impressed with the pluots that I have bought.

The fresh ones I've had were great. Taste just like plums.
