Petite Wineberry Galette

Wineberry Galette

But have you tried wineberries? These foraged berries are the star of this galette.

Japanese Wineberries are a delicious wild berry. The sweet fruit is similar to raspberries which makes it perfect for desserts, baking and jam!

We are making French galette!  A  rustic summer pie but much more easier! Galettes are just a flat round cake topped with fruit and folded edges.

Wineberries can be found growing wild in the Northeast in season during late summer (June-July).  This was my first time foraging,  which is a great way to spend time hiking while exploring nature and parks. Having something to look for while hiking makes hiking just more fun! Foraged wineberries are a great option for beginner foragers because there are no poisonous look-a-like and they are easy to identify!

You can even see wineberries them from the road sides. And you can easily identify them by looking for multi-stemmed thorny canes covered in short red hairs. The fruit is bright red when ripe and the top is held by a red hairy stem.

To make our galette we’ll combine wineberries,  lime  to make the filling for our galette, add some butter for richness, sugar for sweetness, and cornstarch as a thickener. Then we’ll put our filling on top pie crust before baking until golden brown.

Roll out the dough

  • Cut the dough in a circle and transfer to parchment paper.

Assemble the Galette

  • Spread panko (or breadcrumbs) in the center of the pie crust to prevent crust from getting soggy.
  • Place the berry mix in the center of the pie crust. Leave 2 inch from the edge and fold the pie crust edges. The idea is to keep everything contained within its own borders so that nothing spills over while baking.
  • Add cut pieces of butter over the fruit.
  • Brush the crust with egg wash and sprinkle turbinado sugar on top.
