Mango Pâte de Fruits

25 Jun

Although this is not baking related I still want to share. Pâte de Fruits are french sweets. They are made from fruit puree, hence they could be different colours. Each bright colour cube covers with sugar, how can you resist?

It was my first time to make these. Honestly they weren’t perfect because I didn’t cook long enough and they still contained too much water content, as a result the texture was too soft. Again a lessen learnt – be patient, be patient and be patient! Here I used mango puree, but you can use any other fruit puree in the same quantity. Warning: they contain high level of sugar, so don’t eat too many!!! 🙂

Mango Pâte de Fruits

  • 500g mango puree
  • 12g pectin
  • 500g+50g caster sugar, plus more for coating
  • 100g honey
  • 40g lemon juice
  1. Line a baking tray with a piece of baking paper or a silicon mat. Put a 27cm x 14cm rectangle mousse ring on top.
  2. Heat up the mango puree in a sauce pan to 50℃.
  3. Mix the pectin and 50g sugar, add to the mango puree. Continue to cook it until it is boiling and cook for another minute. Add 550g sugar and cool until it is boiling. Add the honey and cook until the mixture reach 107℃.
  4. Turn off the heat and add the lemon juice and mix well. Pour the mixture into the prepared mousse ring. Leave it completely cool down at room temperature.
  5. When it is firm up, put some sugar on top so it is not sticky and it is easier to cut. Remove the mousse ring, use a knife to cut the pâte de fruits into 3cm x 3cm cubes. Coat them with sugar.
