something to chew on
Glace fruit has been a traditional method for preserving fruit since the 14th Century. Whole fruit, smaller pieces of fruit, or pieces of peel, are placed in heated sugar syrup, which absorbs the moisture from within the fruit and eventually preserves it. Depending on size and type of fruit, the whole process can take from several days to several months.
