Candied sugar has its origins in [[India]] and [[Iran (Persia)|Iran]]. It has several different names in India among which are ''Panakarkandu'' or ''Kalkandu'' (kal - rock, kandu - candy) (Tamil/Malayalam), "khadi sakhar" (Marathi), ''[[mishri]]'' (Hindi)<ref>[http://www.tarladalal.com/glossary-misri-1150i Glossary: Misri] [[Tarla Dalal]] website.</ref> and ''kalakanda/patika bellam'' (Telugu); the [[Persian language|Persian]] word for rock candy is <I>"nabaat<I>". [[Arabic]] writers in the first half of the 9th century described the production of candy sugar, where crystals were grown as a result of cooling supersaturated sugar solutions. In order to accelerate crystallization, confectioners later learned to immerse small twigs in the solution for the crystals to grow on. The sugar solution was colored with [[cochineal]] and [[indigo dye|indigo]] and scented with [[ambergris]] or flower essence.<ref>[http://www.sugarindia.com/candy.htm Candy Sugar- the purest form of cane sugar!>]</ref>
