Making Festive Sugar Plums ahead
Asked on 29 Nov 2016 by christine christine
Reference the Festive sugar plums. Because the fruit has been cut up and orange juice added, there is obviously a shorter 'keeping' time than if the dried fruit were left whole. Could you let me know what the recommended keeping time is; do they need to be kept in a fridge, or is an airtight container sufficient. thanks.
The will keep for a week in an airtight container in a cool place but not the fridge.
The sugar is likely to absorb the moisture and loose it’s frosted appearance but you could roll them in the sugar just before serving.
