Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Put 100 g pistachios in a small frying pan on medium heat to toast/dry roast for 4 or 5 minutes.

Stage 2 - 3 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Leave to cool then chop coarsely.

Set aside.

Stage 3 - 10 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Prepare 400 g apricots, cut into quarters (or more depending on size).

Set aside.

Stage 4 - 5 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Roll out 200 g Puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée) into a circle about 8 inches (20 cm) diameter.

Lay a sheet of cooking parchment on a baking sheet and sprinkle with brown sugar.

Lay the pastry circle on top. This will give the pastry a lovely caramelized underside.

Stage 5 - 1 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Preheat the oven to 410°F (210°C).

Spread 50 g ground almonds over the pastry circle.

Stage 6 - 7 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Arrange the apricot pieces on top.

Stage 7 - 3 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Melt 30 g butter and brush over the apricots, then sprinkle with more sugar.

Stage 8 - 1 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Scatter the pistachios over.

Stage 9 - 20 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Bake for 20 minutes.

Stage 10 - 2 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
After 20 minutes, take the tart out of the oven and slide it with the paper onto a wire rack to help the underneath to crisp up.

Stage 11 - 15 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Bake for a further 10 -15 minutes.

Stage 12 - 2 min.
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
When the tart has cooled, glaze the top of the tart if possible.

Stage 13
Crisp apricot and pistachio tart
Enjoy at its best the same day.
Remarks
Finishing the baking on a wire rack in stage 10 is not essential, but will give you the really crisp base that is often tricky to achieve with puff pastry.
Keeping
Should be eaten the same day.

Passion fruit jellies
Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
