A Bit of History

These comfits have fennel seeds at the center, which were eaten mainly in India¬†and enjoyed as a breath freshener after a good meal. They likely came from India¬†with British colonists. They belong to the sugar plum family, made by skilled craftsmen who rolled the seeds in sugar syrup over a fire, let them dry, then rolled them again…sometimes taking weeks to complete.
