Ground Cherry + Plum Crostata
Last week, I posted a blog on How to Make Ground Cherry Compote. In today's blog, you'll discover how to use the ground cherry compote in a tasty baked crostata recipe.
Crostatas are wonderful pastries that are made either sweet or savory. Depending on one's liking, compote or jam makes a great base for a sweeter pastry. Top it with fresh fruit and was-lah, it's almost like an open-face danish.
I try to keep all of my crostata crust recipes similar, as when practice makes perfect, this helps get in the flow to concoct a variety of filling ingredients so you don't have to waste time figuring out how to make the crust. Enjoy!
"I love to make pies - pot pies, quiches, savory tarts, fruit pies. I use an old-fashioned pastry blender with wires and a wooden handle. I never use a recipe."
