How magical, ‘It was the night before Christmas, as the story goes, and we get to that favorite stanza….”while visions of Sugar Plums danced in their heads…” Did you ever wonder what sugar plums were? I have for years and years and always thought it was something magical. I hope that I don’t ruin it for you, Santa Clause still exists, but sugar plums are plums which have been sugared. A wonderful dried fruit stuffed with all kinds of other dried fruit and nuts, and a bit of brandy. The perfect Christmas Bite!
