Instructions
  1. Mash the nuts with the spices and fruits. Daisy would have likely used a food mill, but we have modern food processors to do the job.  Combine all ingredients except the finishing sugar and process until a paste forms. If your dried fruit is really dry (my prunes lost some their moisture) add a little bit of honey to help bond. Empty the contents into a mixing bowl.
  2. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the mixture.  If you have a small tablespoon cookie scoop that is your best option to keep the balls uniform in size.  Squish and roll the paste to form a solid ball between the palms of your hands.  it is like making meatballs.
  3. Place the sugar coating in a shallow pan and place the sugar plums in and roll around, gently pressing if needed to get a nice coat.
  4. Plate and serve with a nice pot of tea or Christmas beverage.  The sugar plums will keep quite nicely over the holidays.
