Dry fruits? We have cherries, melons, plums, pears, figs and of course lemons, orange and citrons... they made this little sweet in Apt since the 14th century!

Confectioners make them by putting fruits in a boiling sugared syrup (sugar replaces the water contains in the fruit). The bath in the syrup is renew about 10 times, until they have that special shiny look!

And also!
