Better known as bing tang hu lu, this dessert is the epitome of Beijing street snacks. Street vendors sell pears, hawthorn fruit, strawberries and many other fruit coated in a clear sugar shell and threaded through bamboo sticks. It was plum season while I was researching recipes for this book; everyone in Beijing was struggling to eat tennis ball-sized candy-coated plums. This is a slightly more elegant version of a well-loved favourite.
