Ingredients
Pastry
  • 185g plain flour
  • 130g butter
  • 10g caster sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Dash salt
  • 2 tbsp ice water
Filling
  • 300ml water
  • 250g honey
  • 500g plums
  • 2 apples
  • Sprinkle of brown sugar
Directions
Pastry
  1. Pulse everything in a food processor just long enough for a dough to form.
  2. Gather into a ball and chill overnight.
Filling
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F, grease a tart tin.
  2. Boil the water and honey, then simmer with the plums for 2-5 mins. The plums should still be fairly firm after simmering.
  3. Remove the plums to drain but keep the water.
  4. Peel and slice the apples and simmer in the water until soft.
  5. Roll out the pastry and line the tart tin. Prick the bottom with a fork. †
  6. Spread the apples over the base, then arrange the plums on top - skin down.
  7. Sprinkle with brown sugar and bake for 20-30 mins until golden brown.
Notes
† It may be worth part-baking the crust, as the apple filling is quite wet and the plums naturally release juice during cooking.
