All these years I’ve heard about the Sugarplum Fairy in the Nutcracker. I’ve read about children dreaming of sugarplums in A VISIT FROM ST. NICHOLAS. Yet I never saw or tasted a real live sugar plum of my own. Until today.
When I stopped at my local farmer’s market, there on the stand, next to sweet cherries and peaches were these little gems. If you get a chance to sample these bite-sized bits of plum heaven, do so. You won’t be sorry.
