Strawberry-rhubarb...Raspberry-peach...Blackberry-plum... The possibilities for combining summer fruit in delicious desserts are truly endless. Do you have a favorite?
I've recently fallen in love with the raspberry-rhubarb combination, primarily thanks to a recipe for Rhubarb-Raspberry Crostata over on Lottie + Doof (there's a link to the recipe below). This combination had never occurred to me, superseded as it is by the mighty strawberry-rhubarb duo. If you like tart fruits, you'll love the depth the raspberry adds to the bright rhubarb flavor. Mmmm...so good!
I'm also in the market for good combinations with blueberry. A pint of blueberries is just so dang expensive that I like to stretch it out by pairing it with another fruit. So far peaches are my favorite, especially if a little ginger is involved.
A few recipes to tempt your tastebuds:
• Rhubarb and Raspberry Crostata from Lottie + Doof
• Peach-Raspberry Pie from Martha Stewart
• Nectarine and Plum Tartlets from Epicurious
