Using jam or jelly for pate de fruit

MissRumphius(4b)December 4, 2013

I would like to use some of my jams and jellies to make pate de fruit for holiday gifts. I have done this before using gelatin but would like to try using additional pectin as i understand that the texture and taste is better. Has anyone done this? And does anyone have a recipe? I am thinking of trying to modify Peter Greweling's recipe (which starts with fruit puree or juice rather than jam) but if I would love to benefit from someone else's experience!

I'm sorry no one has been able to address your question. Pate de fruit isn't a commonly made item. I know we have ended up with some jams that could be sliced by over-using the pectin in them but I doubt that would help you much.
