Item Description...
This excellent study of the ingenuity of sugar boiling and the manufacture of those intriguing avatars of childhood happiness: the humbug, the gobstopper, the peardrop and the stick of rock is now published in paperback. As well as a history, it is also a recipe book, with twenty tried and tested methods for sweets ancient and modern. The byways of knowledge that are illuminated make this so rewarding. There have been studies of modern-day sweeties and their immediate antecedents, but this goes further back, to the late Middle Ages. As much as a history of sweets, it is also a study of sugar and its place in our early diet.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Absolutely Fascinating  Mar 31, 2005
Sugar-Plums and Sherbet is not a quick read, but it's a fascinating one. The author goes into the history, chemistry, and early manufacture of sugar candies in Britain, and even includes a few recipes for unusual treats. This book is full of facts you probably never knew. (For example: Sugar was considered a medicine when it first arrived in Britain. Or: some people boycotted sugar when slave labor was used to produce it.)

Anyone who is interested in food history will love this book.
