Les Palets Pâtes de Fruits
F. Doucet Confiserie, founded in 1969 by François and Maggy Doucet, is a family-run confectioner located in Val de Durance, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. Surrounded by orchards bathed in a climate ideal for fruit production, this small company (it employs about 70 people) benefits from abundant supplies of the best local fruits and nuts. More than 70% of the fruit they use is harvested at full maturity in Provence and neighboring regions.
The confiserie, which has stayed remarkably true to its roots over time, is currently run by the Doucet's grandson. It's in the French part of Provence—a part of Provence still untouched by the English or Americans, where you can still hear the wonderful Provençal accent.
This exquisite gift set contains an assortment of five intense fruit pâtes, including Orange Apricot, Mandarin, Pear, Strawberry and Raspberry. Each is made with 51% fruit, cooked briefly with sugar and just a touch of pectin to lock in the natural freshness and create a soft, exquisite jelly packed with bright fruit flavor.
A stunning addition to any dessert presentation, and a unique gift for the host and hostess! Each box contains 20 candies.
