    Glazed Bumbleberry Pie in Coconut Hazelnut Crust with Lemon Yogurt Drizzle

    This delightful tart is filled to the brim with “bumbleberries.” Not to mislead, though: there is no such thing as a bumbleberry. It’s actually a mixture of fruits and berries that some suggest originated in the Maritimes. In our version, we’ve combined blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. But any mixture will do. Enjoy this summertime treat!

    Directions

    01

    In food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine nuts, coconut, and dates. Pulse until nuts are finely ground and mixture is blended. Add oil and sugar and continue to pulse until mixture holds together in a ball. Add a splash of water if mixture appears too dry.

    Lightly oil 8 in (20 cm) tart pan with removable bottom. Roll out ball between 2 sheets of parchment paper into a circle large enough to fit pan. Press nut crust into pan and up the sides in an even layer. Use your fingers to fix any tears. Refrigerate or freeze until crust is firm.

    In colander, place berries and rinse gently with water. Transfer onto paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain. Then place in bowl.

    In small bowl, place 1/4 cup (60 mL) fruit juice. Sprinkle with gelatin. Boil remaining fruit juice and stir into gelatin, stirring until completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Pour over berries and fold in.

    Mound fruit into chilled crust. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until set. To serve, cut into wedges and spoon a drizzle of lemon-flavoured yogurt overtop, if using.

    Tips:

    • Wash berries just before assembling and thoroughly blot dry or the berry filling will not set properly.
    • For a vegan-friendly gelatin substitute, use 1 tsp (5 mL) agar agar flakes dissolved in 1/2 cup (125 mL) boiling liquid. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until thickened. Refrigerate until slightly chilled, then use as you would gelatin.

    Mussels with Tomato, Saffron, and Fennel

    B12-rich mussels are a very good and economical source of protein and iron. Steamed mussels are a classic way to enjoy seafood—and so is this rich, aromatic broth of tomato, fennel, and saffron. Be sure to allow saffron to fully infuse to get the full flavour benefit, and finish off the dish with the fragrant fennel fronds. Sustainability status Farmed mussels are considered highly sustainable due to their low impacts on the environment. They are easy to harvest, require no fertilizer or fresh water, and don’t need to be fed externally, as they get all their nutritional requirements from their marine environment. Mussel prep Selection: Look for mussels with shiny, tightly closed shells that smell of the sea. If shells are slightly open, give them a tap. Live mussels will close immediately. Storage: Keep mussels in the fridge in a shallow pan laid on top of ice. Keep them out of water and cover with a damp cloth. Ideally, consume on the day you buy them, but within two days. They need to breathe, so never keep them in a sealed plastic bag. Cleanup: In addition to being sustainable, farmed mussels tend to require less cleaning than wild mussels. Most of the fibrous “beards” that mussels use to grip solid surfaces will have been removed before sale. But if a few remain, they’re easily dispatched: grasp the beard with your thumb and forefinger and pull it toward the hinge of the mussel and give it a tug. Afterward, give mussels a quick rinse and scrub away any areas of mud or seaweed, which, with farmed mussels, will require minimal work.
