Sugar Plum Recipe
This sugar plum recipe gets your child to chop, mix, and roll his way to a delicious treat. Sugar plums might sound familiar from the holiday poem Twas the Night Before Christmas or The Nutcracker ballet's "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy." But what is a sugar plum? In this case 'plum' refers to a sweet treat, or comfit, and can be traced as far back as the 17th century. It doesn't have much to do with the fruit we think of as plums today, and traditionally involves a patient process of layering sugar over a spice seed like coriander, over the course of several days. Over time, ingredients like dried fruit were added. Some people even developed their own literal versions of sugar plums! This sugar plum recipe is based on the old tradition, but it won't take you days to do. And there's no baking! Round up family or friends for this festive and easy Christmas activity.
