Blueberries and lemon galette









 
 
 
 
 


I wont bore you talking about how much I love all berries LOL
But I know others are crazy how me in baking and love berries:)
So I only say you I LOVE THIS recipe  a blueberry galette and was really delicious.
I find this nice recipe in Fine Cooking and is from Joanne Chang.
And dont worry you can make with freeze or fresh blueberries not problem.





Ingredients

For dough 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoon of granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
8 tablespoon unsalted cold butter
1 large egg yolk
2 or 3 tablespoon whole milk

Filling

4 cups of blueberries (freeze or fresh)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tbs. honey
1 tablespoon finely grated  lemon zest
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
a pinch of table salt

To brush
1 egg beaten well
2 tabs. granulated sugar


Method dough

Combine the flour  sugar and salt in a medium bowl.
Cut the butter into cubes (1/2 inch) and add them to the flour.
Mix he butter and flour until the flour is not longer white and holds together when you clump it with your fingers.
If you mixed with your hands use a pastry cutter or two forks until the butter is mixed into the flour.

In a small bowl mix the egg yolk and milk and ad them to the flour mixture. Mix gently with a forsk until the liquid is well distributed.
The dough will still look crumbly and dry.

Dump the dough onto a clean counter and work with the heel of your hand.Pushing and smearing it away from you and gathering  and repeating until the dough comes together and is pliable. Turn the dough in a plastic wrap  press it into a flat disk and let rest in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes before rolling out.

Preheat the oven at 180°c Line a baking sheet with parchment
remove the dough from the refrigerator . On a floured surface  roll the dough  into a round  about 13 to 14 inches diameter
Its all right if the edges are a little ragged. Transfer the dough to the baking sheet and put in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.

Fill and bake the galette

Put the blueberries ina a large bowl. Toss the fruit with 1/4 cup sugar.Add the lemon zest honey  flour and salt and toss until everything is evenly mixed.


Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes to keep it from cracking when you assemble the tart. Heap the fruit in the center of the dough round. Using your fingertips, fold the edges of the dough over some of the fruit to create a rim about 2 inches wide. Work your way all around, pleating the dough as you go.

Using a pastry brush, brush the pleated dough evenly with the beaten egg. Sprinkle the granulated sugar directly on the dough and fruit.

Bake the tart until the pleats of dough are completely golden brown without a trace of pale, unbaked dough, about 45 minutes. (It’s all right if some of the juices escape from the tart and seep onto the pan.)

aah ya sé que muchos piensan que soy loca porque me encantan las recetas con berries igual trato de ir variando con otras frutas como manzanas o peras.
 
Además pienso que la gracia de tener un blog de recetas es que uno tiene su sello característico y me guio por mi intuición si me tinca o no una receta cuando es necesario hago otras cosas pero las que hago más feliz son este tipo de recetas.
 
Bueno esta receta la encontré en Fine cooking y es de Joanne Chang es absolutamente deliciosa

  9. Ni que lo digas...me encantan los berries...me acordé del verano...trajimos muchos arandanos del campo de una tia de mi esposo en Temuco e hice varios kuchens =)...esta bien que te guste...no hagas caso jeje
    como estan tus chicos? mejor? sabes? no puedo ir a comprar merengues...etoy medio mal de la insulina y problemas con el azucar =/..me hice unos examenes (del que tienes que tomar glucosa) y me dijo el ginec. que estoy al borde de una diabetes gestacional...de esto hace casi un mes, y hoy fui a hacerme nuevamente el examen para ver como va todo ...la verdad me asusta un poco, y me apena que no pueda comer dulce como quisiera...me encanta!! pero tampoco quiero que sea mi perdicion o complicaciones para Amanda...a ver si despues del embarazo puedo comer un poco mas =)
    besitos!

    1. oh Ema lo siento que estes con eso si a veces e da y sellama justamente diabetes gestacuional no sólo por Amanda tienes que cuidarte por tí.
      Una vez hace tiempo me hice ese examen es super asqueroso. Por suerte salió bueno. Acuerdate que puedes cocinar con splenda o sucralosa muchas veces la uso y es super buena.
      Los niños mejor gracias aunque tienen harta tos!

  10. Gloria!
    gracias por tu respuesta...asi es,..tengo que cuidarme por ambas...
    aparte, mi papá es diabetico y era igual de bueno para los dulces que yo, asi que mi futuro no se ve muy prometedor.
    Yo tengo gotitas de stevia...será como lo mismo?? pero con las masas? eso de splenda (sorry lo bruta jeje) viene en polvito??
    Me alegro que tus chicos esten mejorando...uf, la tos es la ultima etapa..a tomar tusilago, decia mi abuelita.

    1. Si mañana te daré algunos datos normalmente los venden en sobres en el Lider la Stevia es buena pero para estas cosas prefiero sucralosa o splenda por ejemplo esta misma tarta la masa lleva muy poca azucar se reemplaza. Y el relleno se le pondría splenda en vez de azúcar y sin miel por supuesto Puede ser mermelada dietética de moras y queda super bien (una vez lo hice)
      mañana te escribo besos
