Rustic Strawberry Rhubarb Galette on The Fresh Exchange - Seasonal Garden to Kitchen Recipes

We have approached the beloved Strawberry and Rhubarb combo season here in Michigan. It is one we all anxiously await. The sweet and tart combo of these midwest favorites are hard to top. The taste of a Strawberry and Rhubarb pie is quintessential of my childhood memories….

I love galettes because even if they fall apart, they are still beautiful and rustic even if imperfect. So I am a HUGE advocate for the always impressive and great tasting fruit galette which can work for breakfast or dessert depending on your mood.

What Is A Galette?

A galette is a french pastry dish with sweet or savoury fillings topped with rough edges folded in for a rustic, gorgeous appearance. In French cuisine, the word ‘galette’ refers to a flat cake. It comes from the Norman word ‘gale’, which means flat cake.

It can also refer to round, flat cakes and cheesy Breton galettes. Because galettes don’t require tins, they’re more convenient to make – simply roll out your pastry, fold your filling up roughly before baking – and they’re easier to adapt than traditional tarts.

That said, you know I promote natural and healthy around here, but in this case pull out that grassfed butter or make your own and then make the dough right for this. Make sure it is well chilled before rolling especially on a hot day! But below is a quick, easy, and simple way to make a really great galette.

Tools You Will Need To Make The Strawberry Rhubarb Galette

  • Cast Iron Skillet
  • Rolling Pin
  • Silicone Bag
  • Food Processor

The main thing to know about making any galette is to embrace the imperfections. I have never made a “perfect” galette like I see in a magazine, but every time it is a crowd hit and ends up being beautiful in its own rustic way. I highly suggest going after this one if you are someone who doesn’t bake well. It will turn out great I promise.
