Mango Pate de Fruit

Pate de Fruit/Fruit Pastilles

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 12 Pieces 1x


A simple recipe for these delicious sweets.


  • 1 1/2 cup Mango or Strawberry Puree
  • 2 1/2 cup Caster Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 3/4 cup Liquid Pectin


  1. Prepare an 8×8-inch square pan by lining it with parchment paper or use a silicone pan.
  2. Cook mango puree and sugar together in a medium saucepan over low heat until they form a very thick syrup. Depending on the thickness of your puree, it will take between 30 minutes – 1 hour. The syrup should thickly coat the back of a spoon or spatula.
  3. Once the syrup has thickened enough, add the butter and cook for 3 minutes more, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the pectin while hot. Pour immediately into prepared pan.
  5. Allow cooling to room temperature. Cover the pan with foil and refrigerate overnight until set.
  6. Once the pate de fruit is completely set, cut them into small squares with a knife dipped in water. They can be rolled in caster sugar or left plain. The sugar makes it easier to store and stack, as it prevents them from sticking together.
  7. Pate de fruit can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 2-3 days
