Tian aux Fruits (Baked Fruit in Almond Crust)
A tian is a traditional clay pottery dish from Provence. There are beautiful variations that can be found in local markets, although the traditional variety is made by a few potteries. A glass baking dish (Pyrex) is a good alternative, do not use metal. The desert is really easy and not too sweet. You can make this with any fruit or berry that is in season except strawberries (they are too runny). Nutmeg has played with the fruit and jam combination to rave reviews every time. So have some fun.
