Apt and its candied fruits

Cherries from Apt | Véronique PAGNIER / CC-BY-SA

Candied fruits? We have cherries, melons, plums, pears, figs and of course lemons, oranges and citrons...

They made this little sweet in Apt since the 14th century!

Confectioners make them by putting fruits in a boiling sugared syrup (sugar replaces the water which is in the fruit).

The bath in the syrup is renewed 10 times, until they get that special shiny look!
