Made and served this about a month ago. End of semester means behind in so many ways including writing anything on this.
Strawberry Season has presented a challenge–how many different ways I can use them before they spoil.When sick last year Mrs. LaVonne (my mother-in-law) and Fred brought me a set of Fine Cooking magazines to read and my favorite recipe based on looks was the Rustic Strawberry Tart (September 2000, pg. 52). I love anything that is at its core pie. So much so that I’m pretty sure I could go without cake the rest of my life. I saw that recipe and then Carrie sent this recipe to me. I took it as a sign that this needed to be made.
This recipe at the height of strawberry season with a little extra tart from blackberries made for a very happy table. I also love that this is a recipe with which the finished project can look ugly. The jagged edges and less than symmetrical look just add character.
