Rustic Apricot Jam

This recipe yields a very chunky, rustic jam that relies entirely on the fruit's natural pectin, in concert with sugar, lemon juice, and heat, to set perfectly. This jam works well with Blenheim apricots, or any other small, freestone apricot (apricots that have pits that pop out easily, rather than clinging to the flesh). More

Layered Toasted Coconut Puddings With Red Fruit Puree and Coconut Cream

In its original form, rote gr├╝tze is a simple pudding made with red fruits, thickened with starch, and served with milk or cream. In this wildly re-imagined version, a red fruit puree is layered on top of a toasted coconut pudding, then topped with an aerated cultured coconut cream. While the number of components may make it seem like a restaurant dessert, each step is easy and the indulgence is worth the effort. More

Iced Yogurt With Mead-Baked Peach From 'Paris Pastry Club'

When fruit is at its peak, it's best served simply; something that Paris Pastry Club author Fanny Zanotti knows well. This recipe for mead-baked peaches comes from a childhood memory of picking peaches in an orchard, and having them prepared just this way for dessert. The tangy yogurt is a lovely counterpoint to the soft, yielding flesh of the peaches. Crunchy honeycomb candy echoes the notes of honey in the mead, and provides a pleasant crunch. More

Rich Red Plum Jam

This is a beautiful jewel-red jam with a perfect balance of sweet and tart. Putting half of the fruit through a food mill and leaving the other half in quarters makes for a rustic textured jam. An overnight maceration gives you a head-start on the jamming process. It's a great jam to pair with fresh, creamy cow's milk cheeses like ricotta. More

Summer Blueberry Jam

This delicious blueberry jam made from in-season summer blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice couldn't be more simple to make. The key is to select the best berries: Namely, a mixture that includes mostly just-ripe berries with a few under-ripe berries as well. More

Ginger-Lemongrass Choux Pastry

Designed as a replacement for the classic biscuit in strawberry shortcake, these choux puffs are light and airy, and infused with the flavor of ginger and lemongrass. They're also topped with a crackly, crunchy layer of cornflake craquelin. While they're delicious in strawberry shortcake, they're also great served with whipped cream, ice cream, or pastry cream.
