Glazed Fruits and Veggies

Turns out, you can make candy out of almost anything simply by crystallising it in a mixture of sugar, water, and light corn syrup (at a 4:2:1 ratio). The resulting treat will have a sweet, crunchy outer shell.

Though apples are a common choice, many other foods — including strawberries, ginger, chili peppers, and even citrus peels — make excellent candidates for candying.

The process is pretty straightforward: Bring the ingredients to a boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved, and then quickly dip your fruit or vegetable. After the shiny glaze hardens, your candied produce is ready to eat!
