My husband affectionately named this tart the "Black and Blue" as it is his favorite one. Whenever I see fresh organic berries at my market, I buy them up dreaming of this tart and how it will bring smiles to my family. Berries are one of the foods that you should be sure to buy organic because they are in the "dirty dozen" list of foods with high pesticide residue. Strawberries do not work well in this tart due to the amount of water they give off when baking. However raspberries are a wonderful addition if you can find organic ones.
I am often asked, "so, what is your favorite tart?" A "Sophie's Choice" indeed and one that I cannot answer. I'm very fickle and after polishing off the last crumb of this black and blue galette I was certain this was my favorite, knowing full well that next week my mind will change with the next post of a different tart.
Galettes are so simple to make and no tart pan is needed. I love its rustic vibe with its no-fuss crust... simply roll and fold.
I published a different version of this black and blue galette recipe when I first began this blog almost two years ago. However, chances are you haven't seen it yet unless you were one of my three subscribers!
