Sweet and fruity raspberry and passion fruit pastilles are much easier to make than they look. Cut into small squares, toss in caster sugar and pack into pretty glass candy jars tied with ribbons and a gift tag. One batch of this recipe will make enough pastilles to fill a couple of jars, making a couple of gifts at once. As they are made with real fruit, they are better for you than most sweeties. These would be a lovely gift and (as always) any off-cuts are a little gift to yourself...
'Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles' (now owned by Nestle) were first made in Fawdon, Tyneside, England in 1881. Small round sweets with a jelly-like consistency, due to the gelatin they are made from, and are covered with sugar. They contain fruit juice, have no artificial colors or flavors, and come in five flavors: lemon (yellow), lime (green), strawberry (red), blackcurrant (purple) and orange (orange).Tubes of Fruit Pastilles are wrapped in foil-backed paper with a paper wrapper over the top.
The British love affar with fruit pastilles can be dated back to 1881, when the Rowntree family began to manufacture them in Tyneside. The sweets are also popular in Australia, where, since the acquisition of Rowntree by Nestlé in 1988, they've been known as "Wonka fruit pastilles".
