A Provençal delicacy melting and delicately scented.
The reputation of the calissons has crossed the borders. The lines of this delicacy are recognizable among all and are synonymous with a happy tasting. A mixture of finely ground almonds, melon and orange peels, they rest on a host bed and get together with royal ice to make it a delight enjoyed by gourmets.
Like many greedy, you will not resist this great specialty of Aix-en-Provence that is the Calisson. The manufacture of this confectionery has kept its artisanal character and is carried out in two stages: the preparation of the dough and the training of the calissons. The almonds are hulled, then crushed with candied melons and added fruit syrup in a proportion of 40% almonds for 60% fruit and syrup. The Calisson owes its first flavor to the sweet almond of Provence awakened by a few bitter almonds. Its originality, its fluffy, are given by the melons and candied oranges of syrup that enter its dough. His coat is a piece of topped of royal ice.
Candied melons at heart, a very high rate of almonds make the secret of the finesse of calissons.
