1. wash and dry fruit
2. whip egg whites till forthy ( you can also use lemon juice it you dont want to use eggs)
3. dip or coat with a pastry brush
4. coat with fine granulated sugar, remove excess
5. play on a parchment coved sheet tray
6. store in a cool place for an hour of untill they harden

hope that helps, i got the info form my garde manger book

i dont really know since i havent tried it yet but i think since its fruit it can be done ahead of time. but you should use the lemon juice instead of the the egg whites if its gonna be more than 4 hours outside of the fridge.
