Yellow pectin arrived yesterday so pâte de fruit à la gfron1 will be attempted today or tomorrow. All fingers are crossed. I've been married for over 30 years but only as a result of the discussion with my husband over this thread have I discovered that he likes these. Much of my chocolate or patisserie creations are given to neighbours because we are both people who only have to be in the same room as such to pile on weight. As this will be a small first batch the neighbour might not get a taste (if indeed I manage to produce something edible...).
