Same idea as caramelized (candied) apples and just as scrumptious. The recipe came from a magazine with typical recipes of the Mexican state of Tabasco.

These are WONDERFUL!! Of course, they're more like candy than produce, but that works for me! Pretty easy to make, too, just resist the strong temptation to lick the spoon (that would be seriously painful!). Another winner in my book, Mexi-Rosie!
