Fruit paste is a confection made from fruit cooked with sugar and possibly pectin. Cast in a mould or cut into squares or rectangles, it was originally a method of preserving the flesh of the fruit, hence the name "dry jam".
The invention of fruit jellies dates back to the 10th century. In the middle of the 15th century, the first mentions of fruit jellies were made. These were made around Clermont-Ferrand and are known in the West as "pâtes d'Auvergne".
The Auvergne region was one of the main fruit paste producing regions in France: manufacturers of Auvergne fruit pastes are obliged to use 67-100% pulp (minimum 2/3 of the pulp used), in accordance with the recipe registered for Auvergne fruit pastes in 1947 by the "Chambre syndicale des Confiseurs, Confituriers et Conserveurs de Fruits d'Auvergne" of that time. Today it has been supplanted by the Vaucluse, which has become the leading manufacturer.
There are many types of fruit jelly, the most common being quince, apricot, apple, citrus, plum, etc. For best quality, it is preferable that the fruit be fresh. It is the sugar that preserves the pureed fruit. During cooking, the mixture should thicken without caramelising. After two or three days of drying, it is removed from the mould or cut into different geometric shapes and rolled in granulated sugar.
