I'm actually trying comfits (again) using what I learned at Ivan Day's
course two years ago.  A friend and I are experimenting with (separately)
coriander seeds and anise seeds.  We put about 9 coats (charges) of a gum
Arabic solution on them this morning since Ivan claims that it holds in the
essential oils.  We have electric stoves and woks so this is certainly
experimental.  Tomorrow morning we start with the sugar solution - 10-15
charges and then let the seeds dry for a day before doing another 10-15
charges, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum and repetition.  Last batch I did was
in the early 1990s and I still have some of them!
