Flushed with the success of my ‘Dead Things and Custard’, we moved up a gear and had Dead Things Tart Tartin the other day, which I think sounds very posh indeed..!
I was very pleased with myself having made ‘rough puff’ to top a cheesy pie, but had half left, sat in the fridge getting a bit stiff, and we had half a pineapple going a bit brown, a half chewed banana and some partially gnawed apple and pear, as well as some gingerbread biscuits that BigSmall and I made, and then forgot about the last few (they were at least 3 weeks old..)
Sooooo, I cut all the fruit into chunks, sautéed (fried) it in butter (I just added the banana right at the end). Then bashed up the biscuits with a rolling pin and sprinkled that over the top of the fruit still in the pan,
rolled out my slightly stiff rough puff and wodged it in top
and then bunged the whole lot in the oven for about 30mins.
I also found a very wrinkled looking passionfruit lurking at the back of the fridge, so once I had deftly manoeuvred the tart out of the pan, I squeezed the pulp and pips over the top, and triumphantly
plonked it on the table served it up!
Another victory in my Waste not Want not attempt to #stopfoodwaste!
