Cranberry Pâte de FruitMADE BY WILLAMETTE VALLEY CONFECTIONERY IN PORTLAND, OREGON
The geniuses at Willamette Valley Confectionery combine one of our favorite jelly candies (pâte de fruit) with tart, crimson cranberries from the Oregon coast.
Shhh..don't tell raspberry, but we might have a new favorite. The intense acidity of the cranberries is a perfect match for the sugar high of pâte de fruit. Plus, the fruit is jam-packed with natural pectin (hello wobbly rolls of cranberry sauce), so it gives these babies a fantastically chewy, jellied texture.
We'll be nibbling these berry good sugar-dusted gems all winter long.
