Bring out the glazed fruit during the holidays, beautiful presentation and the fruit tastes like candy. Try grapes, strawberries, apples – you get the idea.
Glazed Fruit Recipe
- Wash fruit, such as strawberries and grapes, and dry thoroughly with paper towel. If the fruit is too damp the sugar will just dissolve.
- Use a fork to lightly whisk an egg white in a bowl. Use a small, clean pastry brush to lightly brush the fruit with egg white.
- Place caster sugar on a plate. Roll the fruit in sugar. Set aside to dry. Use frosted fruit to decorate desserts or as a table setting.
