Candied Fruit Category
Candied fruit = crystallized fruit = glace fruit is made by soaking fruit or fruit pieces into a bath of hot sugar syrup. After a while, the fruit becomes sufficiently impregnated that the sugar serves as a preservative and the fruit becomes slow to spoil.
Candied fruit is used in cakes and muffins, or as an ice-cream topping.
Candied fruit that's coated with a glossy coating of extra sugar is called glazed fruit.
