Home preparation of candied fruit is not complicated, it will help to preserve fruit for a very long time and will give it not only interesting appearance but also taste. Use it for home baking and home-cooked housewives.
Candidating fruit results in complete evaporation of water, which is replaced by sugar syrup. Sugar has been used as a preservative since ancient times.

Before you can start making any fruit, you need to prepare it. We select only healthy pieces, chemically untreated. First, it is well washed if it contains pecs or seeds, remove them, remove the rootstocks and cut into slices. You should not be stronger than 6 cm. Put the holes in the thick slices through the skewers to get sugar.
What Fruit to Candidate?
Candy can be given almost every kind, some of the fruits can also be barked.
Hard apples include apples, pears or ginger. You need to cook first. Prepare an infusion: for 1 kg of fruit, 1 liter of water and 2 kg of sugar. Put the fruit in the brine for 2 minutes and let it dry for 24 hours. Subsequently, remove the fruit, remove the resulting foam, reheat the infusion and return the fruit to it. Cook on a light flame for 3-4 hours. After this time, wrap the pieces in the flour sugar and let it dry in the oven or dryer. The fruit lasts for about 3 months.
These include strawberries, raspberries or apricots. We do not need to cook this fruit, just put it in a sugar solution that has passed through the boil. We let the twenty-four hours of nightmares. Remove the fruit, top the syrup and bring the fruit back to it. Repeat for seven days. Then, wrap in the sugar powder and dry, as well as the harder.
