Calissons in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France – a traditional candy from the village of Aix-en-Provence made from fruit confit and ground almonds with a layer of icing (glace royale) and flavored with orange blossom (fleur d’oranger). The texture is similar to marzipan and the shape is called a navette, after a tool used in weaving.
