These Are a Few of My Favorite Things ...

Check it out - our great produce supplier, Jim Mills of Produce Express, brought us our first boxes of apricots and nectarines, which are two of my favorite stone fruits. These are absolutely gorgeous and I'm using a lot of them tomorrow to make 200 fruit galettes for banquets. Jackie and I are cutting squares of puff pastry, then spreading them with almond cream, layering the sliced fruit over that and sprinkling with cinnamon sugar. We bake them in a hot oven until the pastry is golden brown and the fruit starts to caramelize. Making galettes is one of my favorite ways to use stone fruit - they're simple and so delicious!
