From the bounty of the orchards and fields in the heights of their seasons, we turns fresh fruits in their peak of ripeness into Pate de Friuts, ‘jewels’ free of gelatin or additives. Their tradition dates back to the Middle Ages in the Auvergne region of France. Cooking the fruits to a thick paste was a method of preserving them beyond season.
Their exquisite taste quickly appealed to the connoisseurs and the Pate de Fruits soon embellished the royal tables. The originals were apple-based and the most popular in French culinary history are apricot. For centuries the recipes were kept secret, jealously guarded by the monasteries, before finally crossing the threshold of the most renowned pastry shops.
