This galette was pretty perfect timing for what was going on in my market. Lots of stone fruits and berries on hand.I had left the nectarines off my list but had picked up some cherries for snacking. Rather than making a second trip I just subbed in some cherries figuring it still counted in the summer category.I’m still really on the fence about the combination of mint, lime and ginger with my particular set of fruits. I’m not sure if the cherries threw it off but I was really wishing I had subbed in some cardamom.
I cut my cherries in half and followed instructions for the rest of the fruit and this is where I made a crucial error. I should have tasted all my fruit. I was worried that the plums were a tad underripe but it turns out the apricots were incredibly sour. It was very surprising given their texture and fragrance. The lady fingers were a perfect way to catch the fruit juice. I like making these myself but they were super easy to just purchase and use and made the overall work for this galette a breeze.Rolling up the sides of the galette was fun and I loved the rustic look of this.
Overall this galette was pretty fabulous. I had a piece with a little honey greek yogurt which was great and light. I ended up having to pick off the apricot slices on subsequent bites. They were so sour it was like sucking on a fresh lemon slice. Overall the recipe was pretty great although I might mix up the flavor profiles depending on my fruit for future attempts.
