Description

A specialty of Provence, these classic French confections are reminiscent of marzipan (since they are made with ground almonds) but with a singular flavor from candied fruit in the paste. Candied melon is the traditional choice, as are candied orange peel and orange flower water, all of which combine to impart a floral quality that gives these decidedly grown-up candies a singular flavor. Wrap them as gifts for the holidays; they will keep for about a month at room temperature.
