Somehow it’s already time for the 4th of July! And in my mind the 4th means all the berries because, hello – blue and red! Fruit tarts are the perfect way to celebrate and but some beautiful berries on display. I used my favorite California Giant Berry Farms berries to make this tart look extra delicious and a sweet and tart lemon curd sauce. Hot tip – if you are going to make this for a gathering you can make the crust ahead, wrap it in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge, make the lemon curd ahead and put it in the fridge and chop your fruit. Then just bring every and assemble before serving! It is the perfect summer dessert that everyone will love. Now that berry season is in full swing I love having them always chopped and ready in my fridge. I didn’t realize until Ruthie started eating but I had gotten in a rut of never buying fruit – I know terrible! And now that I buy it more for her I am remembering how incredible it is. Especially when it’s berry season! So go to your local store and get some Cal Giant Berries, using this awesome coupon!!
Oh and don’t forget to tag my on instagram when you make it!
I couldn’t choose just a few photos for this post… i’m just so in love with fruit tarts!!
