At www.tastespottingcom site there are hundreds of galettes; no I didn’t count them but it seems like there is a lot of them, they are picturesque and now I know they are delicious as well and so easy to make.
Naturally with plums I thought of poppy seeds; my grandmother used to make plum bread with poppy seed topping, or plum jam bread with poppy seed topping. Both are delicious.
In a medium bowl combine flour,add ginger, salt and stir until combined, add chilled pieces of butter and either use pastry blender or your fingers, work the butter until it resembles coarse meal, add ice water and stir just until dough is moist and comes somewhat together. Don’t knead it. It is okay to see small pieces of butter in the dough. Wrap the dough into the plastic wrap and chill for 20 minutes.
