NYS Bakers Annual Mets Outing


Click Here to See Duda's Home Run
Well the thermometer hit 92 degrees and people were complaining about the heat and humidity, but we are bakers and those people have no idea what hot is until they spend a few hours prepping in the back of a shop with the ovens roaring.  We finished our day and were off to Citi Field for our annual Mets game with our fellow NY Retail Bakers.  This year was a little more special because for the first time in quite a few years, the Mets were actually in playoff contention and only three games behind the Washington Nationals.
We were not disappointed. In the first inning, with a runner on base, Lucas Duda came to the plate and hit a high, deep, screaming shot to right center field which was where we were seated.  Several of our brave group lunged and attempted to bare hand this home run, but it bounced off of a chair in the 11th row and ricocheted back to the 5th where it was snatched out of the air by one our our bakers pictured above.

 Since it was televised, we all got our 15 minutes of fame.  Click on the link for the video above  to see all of the action.
The Mets added two more runs, Syndergaard struck out nine opposing batters and held San Diego scoreless , while we enjoyed a glorious night of fun, food and seeing old friends.

Blueberry-Nectarine Crostata
Ingredients                 Quantity
All-purpose flour                 2-1/4 cups
Sugar                              1/4 cup
Ground cardamom               1/2 teaspo
Salt                          1/4 teaspoon
Unsalted butter                   1-1/2 sticks (about 6 ounces)
Cold water                           3-1/2 to 4 tablespoons
Amaretti Cookie Crumbs          6 tablespoons
Blueberries                      1 pint
Ripe nectarines, diced   2 cups
Sugar                                3 tablespoons
Cornstarch                       2 tablespoons
Egg (beaten with cream       1 yolk
Heavy cream                       1 tablespoon
Coarse raw sugar               6 teaspoons
Combine the flour, sugar, cardamom and salt in a processor. Pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse to pea size. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons water over flour; process 3 to 4 seconds until starting to come together (if dough looks very sandy, add water and pulse a few more times until clumping but slightly loose). Turn out onto a large sheet of plastic wrap. Bring wrap up and cover top of dough; press to form 7-inch disk. Chill until cold.
Divide dough into 6 equal pieces. Roll out on lightly floured board to form 1/8-inch thick circles approximately 5-inches in diameter. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; transfer circles to sheet. Spoon cookie crumbs into center of circles.
In a large bowl, gently toss blueberries, nectarines, sugar and cornstarch. Mound fruit evenly in center of each circle, leaving a 1-inch border around edge. Bring pastry up and over filling just to form a 1-inch border. Brush pastry lightly with egg mixture and sprinkle with sugar. Chill until cold.
Position oven rack in lower third of oven; heat to 425 F. Bake crostata 35 minutes until center lightly bubbles and crust is deep golden. Cool 15 minutes. Serve warm with gelato or lightly sweetened whipped cream.
Yield: 6 servings
