Pastilles, wine gums, pâte de fruit, gumdrops. So many different names, one delicious candy.
These blackberry pastilles take some time and attention, but compared to most other pastille recipes, they use relatively common ingredients.
You probably don’t need to do any digging around in your local shop to find anything. The same can’t be said for recipes that require ingredients like pectin, glucose or gelatin (the last of which sadly takes most jelly sweets off the cards for vegetarians).
All you need for this simple recipe is fruit, more fruit, fruit juice, sugar and water. Easy peasy.
