Christmas confit and traditional confits : origins of traditional confits

Do you know why confit recipes were originally created? 

The confisage was used to preserve food from one year to the next. At a time when there was no refrigerator, it was necessary to survive in case of a bad harvest.

There are several kinds of “confisage”:

  • with sugar: jam!

Cooking fruits in sugar allows them to be preserved for a long time and thus we obtain jams, fruit pastes and candied fruits.

  • with vinegar: pickles and confits 

Macerate fruits and vegetables (gherkins, capers, onions, cherries, plums…) in vinegar, alcohol, wines and hot or cold marinades also helps to preserve them!

Do you know pickles? They are gherkins, spring onions, or vegetables marinated in vinegar.

A variant of our French confits: chutneys! These spicy sweet and sour sauces, with fruits or vegetables, sometimes both, are very popular in Great Britain and India.

Christmas Confit: a must for the holidays!

It is especially with festive dishes that confits are consumed, hence the traditional Christmas confit.

The confits bring notes of refinement and sometimes exoticism. They are highly sought after by consumers and represent very important seasonal sales.

Confits have become essential on all holiday tables. They accompany the meal, from the appetizer to the cheese, including foie gras, game and poultry, meat and fish.

Don’t hesitate any longer: in your shops or on your menus, to accompany your buffet or room-service catering offer, our confits in individual jars or small formats will seduce your customers!
