According to regulations, the Calisson contains at least 30% almonds; the Parli recipe has a proportion of 42% (the mixture varies slightly from manufacturer to manufacturer, as does the taste of the result).

The preserved melon, orange peel and blanched almonds are first coarsely ground and then even finer in an old 1970s machine with granite wheels.

This prevents the almonds from being crushed too much and thereby losing their oil and aroma: the texture of this paste should remain grainy. After adding fruit syrup, the paste is gently heated and left to rest for 48 hours.

Léonard Parli was a master confectioner specializing in candied fruit who, like many of his compatriots, fled Switzerland in the 19th century to escape famine. He ended up in Aix-en-Provence and in 1874 founded a company that made the city's famous specialty, the calisson. After inventing a machine to speed up production, Léonard Parli was producing 300 kilos of the small almond-shaped delicacies a day until 1908. The company, which is considered to be the first manufacturer of calissons in Aix-en-Provence, is still run by the Parli family.

Today, since 1910, the Parli factory has been in its ancestral home near the Aix-Centre train station (Parli chose this location to be able to send its products quickly by train).

Above the door is his coat of arms carved in stone, a Swiss cross framed by palm branches, representing Provence.

Inside the little rococo shop, calissons are of course offered - both in decorative cellophane bags and in the distinctive white, diamond-shaped box used by all calissons makers.

It's still a very small operation, employing a few dozen people depending on seasonal demand: at peak times, like Christmas, the factory produces 500 kilos of calissons a day. The other surprise is that much of the process is done by hand. The main ingredients of calissons are all Mediterranean: canned melon, orange peel and almonds.
