Hi Everyone! This recipe was requested by one of my subscribers. It is super easy to make! So I hope you give it a try! It is great all by itself, or with oatmeal, yogurt, in breads, cakes or pies!


2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1lb of your favorite fruits,
1 cup of water

(You can crystallized peaches, cherries, apricots,pineapples, plums and just about any fruit you can think of, you can also crystallized veggies!)

In a large sauce pan, combine the sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, lemon juice and water, stir together and bring to a boil. Let it boil for about 3 minutes.

Wash and slice the fruit. Feel free to cut it in any shape and size you like.

Slowly add the fruit to the boiling sugar/syrup and let it continue to boil for 2 more minutes. Turn off the stove, but leave the sauce pan there, until completely cooled. Refrigerate for at least 2 days.

2 days later:

Remove the fruit from the syrup, place the fruit on a baking sheet, and let it dry for 1 day or if you prefer, dry it in a 190ºF preheated oven for 6 hours.
