Plum, Apple and Almond Tart

Ingredients

  • 500g firm plums, quartered
  • 2 big Braeburn apples or other - peeled, cored and chopped
  • Shortcrust pastry
  • 6 tbsp plum jam
  • 3 tbsp ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • sprinkle flaked almonds 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Grease and flour a tart tin.
  2. Put apples in a small saucepan with a splash of water. Simmer until the apples are completely soft. Then blend to your liking.
  3. On a floured surface roll out your pastry; it should be about an inch bigger than your mould. Cut to size and place inside the prepared mould. Don't forget to prick the bottom of your pastry with a fork, so it doesn't rise. At this point if you want to precook the pastry you can, finishing with an 'egg wash' to give a crisp base.
  4. Take your mould ready with the pastry, cover the base with the jam and then sprinkle over the ground almonds. Next pour in the apple compote - add just enough to cover the base. Add the plums in a circular pattern, skin down. Glaze with honey and sprinkle with flaked almonds.
  5. Bake in pre-heated oven for 20 to 30 minutes.
