Reminiscent of Victorian “sugarplums,” this candy of mixed fruits and nuts is very popular in Charleston. It is excellent for tea. It’s necessary to weigh the ingredients, or the recipe simply won’t work. You will need an accurate candy thermometer (test your thermometer in boiling water—212°—and adjust accordingly). The recipe is Mark Gray’s.
