This might sound like a strange question, comes from working too many nights stacking shelves I think, but I have always wondered why prune juice is called prune juice and not plum juice.

A raisan is a dried grape and you get grape juice not raisan juice.

Surly the juice comes from the plum not its dried state (a prune) so it sould be called plum juice right????

Strange question but its just for fun will be interesting to see what answers I get! lol

The reason its called "prune juice" is just condensed more than plum juice.
Its kinda hard to explain....
if you squeeze a plum, you get semi-clear liquid.
But if you squeeze a prune, you get like a paste.
if you ad water to that prune paste...you get prune juice!
and the same goes for raisins.
