Last but not least, This upside-down tart is traditionally made with apples, although other fruits such as pears, plums, nectarines, or peaches can also be used. It’s simple to make, but you’ll need bravery to let the nectarines caramelise, which means cooking them gently for long enough for their juices to combine with the butter and sugar. To turn the tart over, you’ll need a little bravery. A 20cm (8 inch) frying pan with an ovenproof handle is required. Nectarine Tarte Tatin. Oh so yummy, indeed.
