    Heat the fruit in just enough water to cover until it is soft. Drain through a jelly bag and weigh the juice, and use an equal quantity of sugar. Stir together over gentle heat until the mixture is thick and dry. Pour this thick mixture into a baking tin and sprinkle it with caster sugar. When the paste is cold and hard, cut it into pieces, dip them in caster sugar, and store in a wooden box lined with waxed paper. These candies are also good made with redcurrants, as Redcurrant Paste Candies.
