Farm To Table


From the distance I see a banner for Fresh Strawberries from one of the few farm stands on the South Fork of Long Island. I know what I have to do. The berries are on the floor in the back seat of the car while the dog is anxious to get out and run like there is no tomorrow. Once home the berries will transform into tarts, ice cream, shortcakes and compote. This edition of Tuesdays With Dorie (TWD) is a welcome seasonal Strawberry Tart. Made with love.



















P.S. UPDATE from last week: All the brownies were winners...yes Dorie's won, however some kids liked Nick's and Alice's made an impressive show.

Our strawberry season has just begun, in two weeks the self-picking season begins. The tart was great!

I'm jealous. My local farm starts picking strawberries in about a week. I love fresh strawberries!

I'm gearing up for canning some strawberry preserves (which you'll get a jar of :> ) and am looking forward to my "cheat weekend" of the month to indulge in a little strawberry rhubarb pie! I just may have to try that strawberry tart while I'm at it!
