A Bit of History
Sugar plums come from the word “plum,” meaning “good.” Each took weeks to make by a highly skilled craftsman who rolled a seed or nut in sugar in a large cooper pan over a fire, let it dry, and rolled it again. Since only the wealthy could afford them, the sugar plums were associated with wealth and class. The sugar plums were enjoyed as refreshment after a meal.
