This is a great easy recipe that an Italian friend’s mother introduced me to several years ago. You can make it several different ways by using different fruit and jam. Nectarines are in season and they make a really great crostata!
For the pastry:
a pinch of salt
For the top:
1 large nectarine
Half a jar of strawberry jam
Put all the ingredients for the pastry in a bowl and mix them together with your hands quickly until you have a smooth pastry mix.
Spread it evenly into a buttered quiche dish or baking tray and bake for 10 minutes.
Slice the nectarine into thin slices.
Remove the partly cooked pastry from the oven, spread the jam on it and lay the sliced nectarine ontop.
Put it back in the oven for another 20 to 25 minutes and it should be ready!
