November 2020

Do you know which confit recipes are sought after by consumers for the end of the year ?

The confits are specialities of sweet fruits or vegetables candied with sugar and sometimes with vinegar. The recipes for confits are multiple as well as their uses by consumers. You can also call them « chutneys ».

Onion confit, fig confit, wine confits are traditionally used as condiments or ingredients in recipes.

As a condiment, the confits and chutneys accompany our everyday dishes by bringing a sweet note that enhances and softens the marked taste of certain meats or cheeses of character :

  • with poultry such as guinea fowl or quails.
  • With pork roasts or duck breast
  • With Brie de Meaux, a fresh goat’s cheese and a sheep’s cheese.

With festive dishes, confits are a must because they enhance the taste:

  • Onion confit for foie gras or Sauternes wine or Port wine confit.
  • Fig confit with a duck breast or a goat’s cheese
  • Confit of Champagne with a cheese platter, so frenchy!

Of course the confits can be used as ingredients in your recipes : a savoury pie or quiche base, an original sweet and savoury salad sauce, a cheese or meat puff pastry, etc…
