Sugar for dusting
Put ¼ cup of sugar into a medium saucepan along with ¼ cup of water. Heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
Remove from the heat and add the fruit. Stir until it is well coated.
Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fruit to a wire rack. Let the fruit dry for at least one hour.
Spread some sugar in a low, flat, bowl or on a plate. Toss the fruit in the sugar until it is well coated. Return it to the wire rack and dry for at least one hour or until the sugar has hardened on the fruit
Fruit can be sugared the day before and stored at room temperature in an airtight container.
If you are using the fruit to decorate a tart or cake, do so within 4 hours before serving. If refrigerated or left to stand too long the sugar will start to dissolve.
Thank you for trying my recipe - enjoy!
