Blueberry Thyme Galette

Happy July 4th. Today I made a gorgeous blueberry thyme galette with fresh thyme from my garden and blueberry honey.
After a moment of thinking about what it means to be a free country, and feeling gratitude, I usually get to baking something with blueberries. The blueberry farm behind us is open for picking and yesterday I picked six pounds of juicy sweet organic berries.
Baking a blueberry galette is a great way to celebrate this holiday, along with corn salad which will be posted on Saturday, maple bourbon baked beans, and something special I made for the Secret Recipe Club which will be posted Monday.
A galette is an easy way to get out of making pie and worrying about beautifully crimped edges, etc. I gravitate to rustic food that looks like love. This is just one of those desserts. This is headed over to a neighbor’s house in a few hours.
Serve with lemon ice cream if you dare and don’t forget the fresh thyme. Blueberries love herbs. If you don’t have thyme, try a little fresh basil.

Six pounds of blueberries at the U-pic sounds like a fun and productive way to spend a summer afternoon, I love the idea of using the blueberries with thyme!
Can’t wait to try this with my lemon thyme!

Happy 4th! I wish this beautiful gazette was on my menu today, it would be perfect. Our celebration turned out to be more low key than expected but I am thankful nonetheless. Hope yours was more festive!
