Seems to me I read somewhere about soaking the harder, larger items in 
either wine or something else for a while before candying them.  This 
included spices like cubebs and nutmeg.  Can't recall the source now. 
My thought at the time was that this was to soften the larger item so 
that it would be more "edible".
