Pineapple Fruit Paste

800g Fresh pineapple juice

830g Sugar

20g Lime juice

120g Glucose DE 38/40

24g Yellow pectin

11g Citric acid solution

Mix together the pectin and the sugar.

Heat the fruit purée with the lime juice to 105°F (40°C) then add the pectin and sugar mixture, stirring all the while.

Bring to a boil, then gradually add the rest of the sugar.

Bring to a boil again, then add the glucose.

Cook at 75°Bx or 230°F (106°C).

Once cooked, add the citric acid solution and pour out immediately.

Heat the cream with the glucose to 165-175°F (75-80°C), then combine half with the chocolate fèves. Mix well with a spatula, add the rest of the cream, and mix using an immersion blender to form a perfect emulsion. Once the ganache is at 95-105°F (35-40°C), add the cubed tempered butter, which should be at approx. 65°F (18°C) and mix again. Pour out the ganache at 90-95°F (34-36°C).


Assembly and Finishing

1800g Pineapple fruit paste

350gNYANGBO 68% framed ganache


Pour out the pineapple fruit paste into two 34 × 34cm, 4mm-tall frames on a silicone sheet. Leave to cool.

Lay a 2mm-high frame over one of the frames of fruit paste and pour out the NYANGBO ganache.

Leave to set for 1 to 2 hours before covering the ganache with the second layer of fruit paste.

Leave to set for 24 to 36 hours at 60°F (17°C) with a humidity level of 60%.

Once the ganache has set, use the tempered NYANGBO to coat both sides of the frame and use a slicing machine to cut out 15 × 37.5mm rectangles.

Decorate whichever way you fancy. Leave to set.
