My mother always contended, though on what authority I have no idea, that a sugarplum was a prune stuffed with almond paste---marchpane to you Elizabethans---and one blanched almond, which was then rolled in superfine granulated sugar and set aside to "age" a bit in a sealed tin. Now that I think of it, the prunes were thoroughly basted with rum before they were sugar coated and a rum soaked piece of cheesecloth put in the tin with them, draped over the prunes. Authentic? Who knows---but they were sure good.
