How to make “Candy plum”
So, measure the desired amount of plums and sugar. Wash the plums under running water, allow to drain moisture.
Divide the plums into halves and remove the pits.
Fold the plums in a non-stick pan or a pan with a thick bottom and walls, you can even get the pot. Cover and cook on low heat for 15 minutes. During this time, the plums will give the juice and soften. Do not forget to stir them with a wooden spatula.
After 15 minutes, you should get a slurry.
Add the sugar, stir with a spatula.
Preroute plum mass in a blender and simmer for about 15 minutes without a lid, as much as possible to evaporate moisture.
Cover baking sheets with parchment paper for baking. I got two large baking sheets. Spread onto hot plum mixture over the paper. Now the parchment includes silicone, so oiling it is not necessary. I immediately poured the plum puree and leveled his blade. The layer thickness should not exceed 6-7 mm, ideal — 5-6 mm, main — evenly!
Dry the sweetness of the plums in the oven for 4-5-6 hours, the oven door should be ajar, the temperature should not be more than 100 degrees. Readiness check with a finger: if the candy is elastic and sticks her bed, so she is ready! Another way to test: fold the edge of the marshmallows from the paper if she’s good behind, so ready. If the paper remains puree, you still need to dry.
Allow to cool slightly and remove from paper, it is easy to behind, like rubber to the touch. Cut into strips and twist them tightly, store in a glass jar or paper bag in the refrigerator. Bon appetit!
