Part of the “Historical Cookery Books Series”. “Comfits appear not infrequently as trimmings and decorations on period dishes. They are normally sugar covered pills, the ancestor of the modern aniseed ball. Occasional recipes for comfits appear in period cookery books but the key text is a 12 page treatise buried inside Hugh Platt’s Delights for Ladies , This ection is reproduced in full at the end of this work. The first part is a modern interpretation of Platt’s work and the second a collection of period comfit recipes.”
