Step Two: Prepare the Filling

This is where your imagination can run wild. My bright red strawberry galette will be a winner. You can also use the equivalent amount of sliced peaches, apricots or other local berries. Substitute wine or balsamic vinegar for the lemon if you wish!

2 dry pints of organic or local strawberries (if you can, use a small berry varietal from your local farmers’ market, not the berries on steroids from the supermarket)

Zest of one lemon

Juice of that same lemon

2 tablespoons maple or agave syrup

2 tablespoons tapioca flour or organic wheat flower

1/2 of a cinnamon stick, grated

Mix the ingredients together in a saucepan, and heat over a stove. As soon as the mixture boils, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool (if you are pressed for time, you could also heat the mixture in a microwave for 2 minutes).

Drain the mixture, but reserve that liquid! (you can save it and use it as a mixer for a martini, or spoon it over ice cream–either way do not dump it, that liquid is gold!)
