Notes

These little jewels are usually found on the table during the holidays in France. They remind me of a gormet and natural sunkist Fruit Jellies. They are so sweet, seemingly simple and a delicious little mouthful. Some italian bakeries have them too, most popular flavors being raspberry, blackberry, pear etc. I needed to know how to make these little guys, because I love them, and also, I love serving a quartet of tiny cookies and candies with espresso after dinner for guests. Along side my beloved macaroons, madelienes and mini palmiers, they would provide a lovely fruity contrast. I had no idea how impossible it was to find a good recipe and the ingredients are impossible to find as well! I tried some recipes online, but after many runny ones and too chewy ones, I finally stole a recipe from work. It works well with raspberry, and I also made pineapple habenaro!! whew... they were hot and sweet! You must alter the amounts of pectin and citric acid for different fruits**.

If you want to use a different fruit, consult this chart:
