TRIPLE BERRY BALSAMIC GALETTE

Seasonal summer berries are a treat in warm sweet pies, this one includes the enriching addition of balsamic reduction and the subtle taste of basil.

Although this galette is not too sweet, we always try to keep our recipes as low sugar as we can. You can add more sugar  to sweeten our triple berry balsamic galette up to your taste.

As usual, this is gluten free and dairy free; same crust as our caramel apple pie. Start with our sweet flour blend, add some extra coconut flour, the crust is made the same way a gluten pie crust is made, except we made it a bit more wet. The end result was a galette that folded up a little better.

 

Balsamic reduction adds a real depth and fullness to the triple berry combination. There is no tang when balsamic vinegar is reduced down, it retains its robust flavour and looses the vinegary twang. The easy recipe and video to make this happen is on our sister blog, Cookin’ It Easy.

Fresh basil brings a little subtly to the backend of this flavour profile. You can’t tell its basil, you just notice that something fun is at the end.

Lastly, this crust, while not flaky is soft and sturdy, It doesn’t crumble or break, it just melts like a berry filled cookie.

This pairs beautifully with coffee and whip cream. Enjoy!
