I chose to do orange, mango, and pineapple.
Pineapple was a terrible, terrible idea.
But here's the "recipe".
Simple syrup, sugar, fruit.
Boil your fruit in a simple syrup for an hour. Yup, an hour.
Lay on a baking sheet, after coating in (uh, huh) sugar. Bake at 250 degrees for an hour.
Coat in (you guessed it) sugar.
Bag, and give.
If you dare. I'm actually really unhappy with how these turned out. But they're really pretty :D
P.S. I think it's only fair to say that the only reason I'm so unhappy with these is because the smell of sugar still makes me sick after making them. I'm sure they taste fine (Nick assures me they do) but I just can't stand to try them.
And don't tell me sugar doesn't have a smell. It does. Even if I can't exactly remember it at the moment.
