I used the dough I had used previously for my peach galettes. This time round, I rolled the dough thinner to obtain more galettes cos the previous time, the galettes were quite thick (I had to bake them longer to get it crunchy) and too big for an individual serving.
I was at the fruit aisle grabbing the requisite punnet(s) of blueberries, when the blackberries on the side caught my attention. They were selling at a lower price than usual, that's it man. Just like that. They've got me hooked, lined, suckered. I placed a precious punnet of the blackberries in my grocery cart.
Would you believe me if I say I love everything berry but has never really paid the blackberry much attention? I was always enamoured with raspberries, blueberries and strawberries (in that order), that I didn't notice the blackberry fruit. The first touch on my tongue, and blackberries have now officially joined my happy lil' family.
This time round, the galettes' crust didn't taste quite as awesome. I don't know why. I remember the crust was one amazing bit of lemony zest infused crust. Could it be I rolled the dough out too thinly? Or just the combination of fruits that didn't mesh well? I doubt it could be the fruits, cos I loved how the bubbling sweetness of the fruits juices were all drawn out and the taste of the fruits was "mmmmmmm". I think it's time to start searching for another recipe for galettes again. Galettes are so simple to make, they're like the laid back cousin to tarts and pies. In human form, they would probably just go, "Hey dudes, chillax man. I'm just gonna lounge here chillin' and looking gorgeous without much effort. You?" to their tarts and pies cousins. Haha.
