I feel like during the summer, there are berry people and stone fruit people. Don’t get me wrong, berries are good, but they have nothing on a perfectly ripe peach.
During high school and into university, I spent my summers working at a corn stand. We always called it the corn stand, but, in reality, it was a little farmers market that sold lots of produce. My favorite time was never when the berries would come out, but it was when we would start getting the peaches and the cherries. I would collect all the peaches that were too bruised to sell and bring full flats of them home because they were too good to go to waste. My first time baking with them was a peach and cherry crumble that I brought to my friend’s cottage, and I was immediately hooked.
This galette is basically my slightly grown-up version of that first dessert and my ode to stone fruits. Galettes are less fussy than a pie, and I love their rustic look. The almond not only gives a nice flavor but also an extra crunch, which I love! This galette can be made with any combination of stone fruits, but I usually always go with cherries and then a combination of peaches, apricots, or nectarines.
