Hi!

I have searched high and low for a Pates de Fruit recipe, and I'm not having much luck. Does anyone have one that they can post?

Thank you!

Rainey, I think you call the marmalades - its a pate ( as in paste) made of fruit and sugar mainly, and cut like candies. Kids afore it.
Kagney, search google under :" pate de fruits" or pate of fruits", I found under "pate de coings( quinces)" . I'll look in my books and if i'll find something I'll send it to you. And welcome.
Bon Appetit!

Simona

Thank you! My google search has yeilded this, http://www.hungrybrowser.com/phaedrus/m0606M05.htm#3, which may be enough, but I'd like to check it against a book recipe if I can find one.

Kagney...welcome on board this oh so fun ship!

We've a wondrous food program in Australia called "The Food Lovers' Guide to Australia"...and as it happened, this week's episode featured fruit gels being made. Alas, no recipe. However you might have fun watching the clip.

http://www.sbs.com.au/foodlovers/foodart.php?id=8&seriesID=4&episodeID=47

and another if you'd like to see Jean Francois Perron at work on a croquembouche

http://www.sbs.com.au/foodlovers/foodart_results.php?seriesID=4&episodeID=47&key=#

hope you've had success with the pate!

once again, the warmest of welcomes to this simply wonderful place...

Kagney,

I made a recipe for quince paste (it was called "fruit cheese" in the recipe) a couple of years ago that I found in Saveur magazine. I searched on their site and found this recipe, which is slightly different, but sounds delicious nonetheless:
http://www.saveur.com/article.jsp?ID=4582&typeID=120

The one I made was more like thick jam, but still sliceable. I like the idea of drying the paste in the oven to concentrate it; I wonder what other fruit could be used? Quince has an extremely high amount of pectin, which is why it congeals as much as it does, but I wonder if it could be cut with any other fruit?

Good luck!
