|Cassis-pear patê de fruit|
We usually complete a minimum of three recipes per class, so it can get a bit bananas in the kitchen. Believe it or not, last week we also made: vanilla marshmallows, strawberry marshmallows, nougat, chocolate nougat, caramels (plain, fleur de sel with walnuts, and the chocolate variety), pastilles, orange zest hard candy, French pralines, raspberry gummies, sour cherry pâte de fruit, and passion-apricot pâte de fruit.
The passion-apricot pâte de fruit is by far my favorite from the group. Pâte de fruit is France's answer to Chuckle candy — only softer, more deluxe, and made with real ingredients...like fruit.
