Juneberries also known as Service berries are in full swing right now. If you have never tried the Juneberry you should. It is sweet but not too sweet, a soft unique texture with the right amount of berry bite. Usually my son and I would find a tree that was fat with berries and just sort of stand around grazing until we had enough but this time I decided to pick a bunch to bake into some goodies.
On the road to wellness we made a stop at simple pasta. A little olive oil, a little sauteed garlic, and parmesan over some rigatoni, not the best dish in the whole wide world but we are still puny and pink around here.
Due to the abundance of Juneberries I decided a tart was in order. Its your basic pie crust and your basic egg, vanilla, sugar tart base with some Juneberries that were tossed in a little vanilla bean and sugar. Bake until golden, let cool, slice and eat. We may not be eating complex meaty proteins but we can still clobber down some dessert.
Have you seen those Häagen-Dazs flavors that say 'five' -
well this is Häagen-Daz mint and a piece of pie.
