A delicious sweet speciality from Aix-en-Provence made with almonds and candied fruit by Léonard Parli

The Léonard Parli confectionery factory is one of the oldest in the city of Aix-en-Provence near Marseille. Founded in 1874, it is famous for its calissons - little diamond-shaped sweets made from ground almonds and candied fruits. In the 17th century calissons were said to prevent plague, but we think this is just an excuse - but now that Southern France is happily plague-free, we suggest you celebrate with a calisson or two!

Serving suggestion: You can enjoy this wonderful sweets with a cup of coffee or tea.

Composition :
Ground almonds, candied melon, orange peel, sugar, wafer, egg whites.
