how exactly do you cook the prunes?

This recipe is old enough to expect dried prunes (with, as is clear from the recipe, pits). You cook them by just covering them with tap water and simmering them gently until they are soft. Then you drain them, saving the liquid, and remove the pits.

It is now possible to buy pitted prunes that are already moist and soft, but for this recipe you would still need to simmer them in a little water, because the recipe rquires adding the cooking liquid.
