Blackberry Pâte de Fruit

Dark and rich, these are my favourite Pâte de Fruit to make. They even knocked my former favourites – raspberry – off their throne, which I hadn’t expected possible, I love love love anything raspberry.


  • 250gr blackberries – frozen works fine
  • 20gr sugar
  • 7gr pectin powder
  • 150gr sugar
  • 65gr honey

Makes about 40


Simmer the blackberries with a teaspoon of water. Once soft, blend with an immersion blender.
Combine the blackberry purée with the small quantity of sugar and pectin in a thick based pan. Bring to a boil and boil for a minute.

Add the remaining sugar and the honey. Heat to 107°C while stirring well.
Spread the fruit on baking paper in a 0.5cm thick slab.
Leave to cool well for several hours, then cut and toss in fine sugar.
