The stick of sugar of apple is the specialty of the city of Rouen, capital of Normandy, where the apple tree is King. The apple sugar is in the form of a small stick of 8 cm long, delicately wrapped in tin foil and then in paper with gold or silver reflections, curled at both ends. This makes it a particularly elegant gift. Apple sugar is similar to barley sugar. It is indeed a candy sugar cooked and flavored with apple essence with a subtle balance between sugar and fruit. You will discover in the mouth delicate aromas of apples that last throughout the tasting.

This stick of apple has a history: The appearance of apple sugar dates back to the time when apothecaries had the monopoly of sugar confectionery. It is a Spanish apothecary who came to settle in Rouen and taught a certain Pierre DUBOSC the art of jams as well as "the state of sugar and sugar refiner". The delicacy was then provided with therapeutic virtues. Added to Sandal, Aloe or other ingredients it became cordial, pectoral and bony. The melancholy did not resist his consumption. But gluttony was going to prevail over the pharmaceutical aspect. In the nineteenth century, all Parisian confectioners make a point of displaying it in their luxurious shops.
Formerly the apple sugar was made with peanut apple juice that was cooked in marmalade and the juice was extracted by passing this marmalade through a sieve. Then this marmalade finely sifted was cooked with sugar to the big broken. Tablets, lozenges, and sticks, according to the form given to it, were then coated with pulverized sugar, passed through a silk screen, to form a crust which at once gave consistency and allowed for a longer preservation.

Le CAT (Centre d’Aide par le Travail) Le pré de la Bataille est une association  Loi 1901 fondée en 1892 et reconnue d’utilité publique. Sa vocation est d’accueillir toute personne « différente » et de leur proposer un espace de vie et de travail.

Les matières premières sont naturelles. On ne trouve pas de produits chimiques dans les compositions. La façon de faire est traditionnelle et le vrai grand plus, c’est de pouvoir grâce à l’ensemble de l’équipe pouvoir en même temps faire un beau geste en se faisant plaisir. On soutient complétement !


Cet atelier a été fondé en 1892. Il a eu la chance d’hériter des dernières machines d’un confiseur rouennais pour la fabrication des bâtons de pomme. Depuis le CAT du Pré de la Bataille perpétue cette tradition en offrant de belles conditions de travail à des personnes en situation de handicap.

Je découvre cette spécialité rouennaise. Comme c'est très sucré, je l'ai utilisé pour sucrer une compote maison... Un délice !!!
