    I love pates de fruits de passion, and I cannot wait to make this recipe; it seems so simple!
    For anyone that is wondering what Vitpris is, it is a French brand of apple pectin. Since pates de fruits are supposed to be more stable, and not spreadable, it is best if you don't substitute them for another kind of pectin, although if you find apple pectin made by a different company, that would be fine.
    I have found you can purchase it here:
