Apricot Thyme Tarte Tatin

I love making tarte Tatin, mostly at this time of year because there are so many fruits to choose from!!!

If you have dough already on hand (I use a puff pastry roll from the supermarket for this recipe), it really takes very little time! The only tricky part is making a caramel, but again, it's not too challenging. Here are a few link for ideas:

For the dough, we have a recipe here.

For how to make a caramel, watch this! You can either make the caramel in the pan that you will use for your tarte. I used a 8" cast iron pan, so I made the caramel in it and added my fruits right when the caramel was done, to stop it from burning, and continue on with the recipe using the same pan all along. Or you can make your caramel in a pot and then pour it in the pan that you will use for your tart, if this one is not stove friendly. In that case, make sure to pour out the caramel as soon as you've reached the desired color, or it will continue getting darker and burn!

For the fruits, you can experiment with so many! Apricots, peaches, plums, apples, pears, pineapples and more! Avoid berries and fruits high in water. Instead of the thyme, you can use other herbs like rosemary, or spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger...

Enjoy with a scoop of ice cream of course!
