In the historical recipe from Lorraine, the sugar to which water and glucose syrup are added is cooked at about 150°C. At the end of cooking, add a few drops of natural Bergamot essence. The essence of Bergamot gives to the candy this original perfume and its beautiful amber color.
Bergamot is a fruit that is similar to lemon. Its Latin name is also Citrus Bergamia. For a long time the essence of Bergamot has been reserved for pharmacy and perfumery. She gives her characteristic fragrance to Earl Gray tea.

A few words about History: The origin of the bergamot tree, which produces bergamot, is poorly known and some make the connection with the ancient city of Pergamum today in Turkey. Others think it would be a cross between a lemon tree and a bitter orange or even a Lime hybrid. Today this tree is found mainly in southern Italy in the region of Calabria. It would be the King of Poland and Duke of Lorraine, Stanislas Leszcynski, known as Stanislaus the Beneficent, who would have introduced to the court of Lorraine essential oil of bergamot whose perfumes had been in vogue in the Polish court for a long time. Its chef, Joseph Gilliers, uses this essence for making flavored pastilles. But the candy, as we know it now, was developed by a certain Jean Lillich in 1825. This confectioner craft will settle in Nancy where he will marry a Lorraine: Rosalie Bournique. This delicacy gained a fast reputation and the production was relayed by the other local confectioners thus making this candy a regional specialty. The Bergamot de Lorraine really won in the late nineteenth century.
