Provided by Elizabeth LaBau

Categories     Dessert     Candy

Time 30m

Yield 24

Number Of Ingredients 9

1/2 cup pitted dates (coarsely chopped)
1/2 cup toasted walnuts (coarsely chopped)
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup prunes (finely chopped)
1/4 cup toasted skinned hazelnuts (finely chopped)
2 tablespoons cherry preserves
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup sugar

Steps:

  • Gather the ingredients.
  • Place the chopped dates, walnuts, cranberries, prunes, and hazelnuts in the food processor . Pulse the mixture a few times.
  • Add the cherry preserves, cinnamon , and cloves, and pulse several more times until the mixture begins to come together. It should hold itself in a ball when you squeeze it between your fingers. You want to retain some of the coarse texture. Do not overprocess it into a sticky paste.
  • Roll the candy into small 1-inch balls. Then roll the balls in the granulated sugar until they are fully covered with the sugar.
  • Store the finished sugarplums in an airtight container between layers of waxed paper until you are ready to serve them. Sugarplums can be kept refrigerated, for up to one month.
  • Enjoy.

FESTIVE SUGAR PLUMS - OLD FASHIONED SWEETMEATS



Festive Sugar Plums - Old Fashioned Sweetmeats image

I love the Nutcracker Ballet and the music that accompanies it, especially the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies! These fabulous little festive sweetmeats are based on a recipe that I adapted from Delia Smith's latest and BRILLIANT cookbook, "Happy Christmas". I have made these TWICE already - as a pre-Christmas dummy run, and they are SO easy as well as being extremely delicious! Sugar plums are mentioned in all forms of literature; most famously in "The Night Before Christmas"............"The children were nestled, all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads". However, they are a VERY old kind of sweet/candy, and I have traced some recipes right back to the Middle Ages in one guise or another, usually with minced meat hence "sweet meat". This recipe can be made as a boozy after dinner adult treat, or with orange juice so the children can dream of them dancing in their heads! NB: These are great fun to make with the children, as they are easy as well as being "no-cook". If you plan to make them for gifts or to sell, pack them into attractive cellophane bags, glass jars or boxes and add a pretty ribbon as well as a label of ingredients and storage details. This recipe is part of my Old Fashioned Sweet Shop collection of recipes, sweets, candies, fudges, sugar plums and chocolates!

  • Divide the sugar plum fruit mixture into 12 pieces and then roll into small balls, before rolling them in the spiced sugar to coat them all thoroughly.
  • Cut the pistachios into slivers and cut the cherries into quarters, then push the pistachio slivers and cherry pieces into the top of the sugar plums, to imitate leaves and berries.
  • Place them into small paper cases if you wish and store them in an airtight tin for up to 4 weeks if made with brandy, or up to 2 weeks in the fridge if made with orange juice.
  • You may be able to perform the Nutcracker ballet now - or not!
