Little Berry Tarts

When I was growing up, I don't remember seeing punnets of mulberries in the shops cos every-one had a mulberry tree in their back garden. Technically we didn't have a mulberry tree in our back yard but our next door neighbour did. Whatever fruit fell off the tree into our yard we claimed as our own and of course we fed our silkworms leaves from the tree. We didn't ever cook the berries preferring to eat them straight from the tree. My grandma kindly taught me how to remove the purple stains from my skin by using lemon juice.

When I was at my local fruit market on Saturday, nestled next to the blueberries and raspberries were some punnets of mulberries. I couldn't resist them so they came home in my shopping basket but what to do with them?

I decided to use some of the tart shells I have stored in the freezer and made a small batch of creme patisserie to fill that tarts. I topped the tarts with an assortment of berries. I chose not to glaze them but simply sprinkled the tarts with some icing sugar.

I didn't use all the berries and I decided to freeze them as I have a very busy week, then I'll be away this coming weekend. I know exactly how I plan to use them though but that's my little secret for the moment.

I hope you all had a great weekend,



  1. Yum! We grew rasberries on our farm and I used to eat them all the time. I love mulberries too - to be honst, I had forgotten about them! How can you forget such a thing?!

    Lovely photos. Enjoy your weekend away!

  2. Hi Chantel,

    as well as a rhubarb, mango and passionfruit obsession, I've always had a berry obsession. I just love them,
