Glace Fruits (Candied)

Glace fruit, also known as crystallised or candied fruits, have been around for years. They are created by taking whole fruits or fruit pieces and placing them in heated sugar syrup. During this process the moisture in the fruit is significantly reduced and the candying of the fruit eventually preserves it forming a delicious, sweet snack often used in baking. The process gives many fruits a new twist. Granted, this is largely the effect of sweetening with sugar syrup (and we advise eating everything in moderation). But at the same time, this process gives you a completely new flavour and special texture – opening up endless options for playing around with your baking

At Buy Whole Foods Online we love glace fruits. Not only are they completely natural, but they also make an incredibly sweet treat and a fantastic ingredient for baking. Our natural and organic candied fruit supplies are one of the most popular products that we sell. We provide one of the largest ranges available to buy online for delivery to homes and businesses throughout the UK and Europe. So whether you are a full-time baker, cake enthusiast, bakery or small business owner, you’re in the right place.

Our range of glace fruit is frequently used in baking particularly around the festive period. They are a fantastic ingredient for christmas pudding and irish fruit cake and the perfect topping for a cherry bakewell tart. They have a long shelf life and will last in your cupboard around two years. If the fruits begin to harden over time you can simply place in a simple sugar syrup to soften and rehydrate the fruit before using.
