Garden Time!


So happy to be back to Tuesdays with Dorie and to be able to use my home grown blueberries for this Berry Galette. I received this blueberry bush several years ago as a gift and it has never produced many berries. It is a self fruiting variety but it has been much happier this year after I planted two friends for her near by. Maybe I’m just paying more attention to her now that there are 3 bushes? Anyways we have blueberries! I had just stripped it clean for a large bowl of berries when we came home from vacation so I wasn’t sure if I’d have enough berries for the recipe but the recipe only calls for 1 1/2 cups and I was able to get 2 cups plus about 4 raspberries from my first year raspberry bushes.

I mixed the dough by hand and it was very wet and sticky even after refrigerating it for several hours but I used plenty of extra flour to roll it out and it came together ok.

I used two cups of berries and the honey. The berry galette only called for 1/2 the dough so I use the rest of the dough to make a Tomato-Cheese Galette using tomatoes and basil from the garden also.

I thought they were both delicious and took them to a party where they were well received! A fun and easy recipe that you could create endless variations on.
