Blueberry Galette

Posted in Recipes by guardiangirl on July 13, 2009

It’s another pie, isn’t it, but this time it’s called a galette.

I managed to get all the ingredients this time. The pastry was somewhat raw again, but with the addition of lemon zest it was far more palatable and I experienced an only mildly stomach upset this time – well worth it! I discovered that if you don’t have a rolling pin, Hugh’s suggestion of putting pastry between sheets of baking parchment works a treat as you can do the GBH approach without getting your fists sticky. God that sounded awful.  I still didn’t use the hand blender, although I got it out of the cupboard and felt happy staring at it for a while. I took a good, long look inside myself and discovered that my reticence to use the blender is the result of a previous trauma with a bowl of egg whites. I’ll ask a friend to help me with the speed settings and then get back on the horse next time.

Conclusions:
  • Add lemon zest to pastry for a happy life
  • I obviously need to turn my oven up a bit hotter than Hugh says
  • Who needs rolling pins, except as an apron-related style thing?
  • I have to face my hand blender issues before they begin to rule my life
