François Doucet Lavender Honey Fruit Jellies 3.17 oz
Translucent, richly pigmented and rolled in sugar, these jewel-like soft gelled candies from François Doucet Confiseur were historically referred to as “dry jam.” And we can’t think of a better way to describe their flavor. Pâte de fruits have to be made with a high percentage of fruit puree and pulp (François Doucet uses 51%), which gives the jellies a bright fruitiness. They have a higher moisture content than supermarket jellies—so they are not dry, tough or overly chewy—and the light sugar coating prevents stickiness and adds a light crunch. Candy-making is a family tradition for François Doucet, co-founder of the confectionery; his great-grandfather created the first fruit paste in France’s Auvergne region, which inspire today’s pâte de fruits. These Honey Lavender jellies are made with rare, delicate lavender honey from Provence.
