Okay, folks. We all know about sugarplums from the classic line in the Christmas poem: "The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugarplums danced in their heads." But does anyone know what a sugarplum actually is?

I'm here to tell you that Sugarplums are a delightful old-fashioned candy made from an assortment of dried fruit and nuts. Supposedly, Sugarplums got their name by including dried plums, or prunes, in the list of ingredients. My recipe doesn't call for prunes (I like using figs, dates, and cranberries), but it is very flexible, so you can customize them with whatever you have on hand.
