Strawberries are also in season right now, and this no-bake strawberry rhubarb tart is a great way to enjoy these two seasonal flavors together.
As for rhubarb, it’s actually a vegetable. Unlike many vegetables, you definitely cannot eat rhubarb leaves — they’re toxic! But I recommend grinding them down and using them as a bug repellent.
No-Bake Rhubarb And Strawberry Tart
- 3 1/2-4 cups rhubarb (cut into 1/4 – 1/2 inch pieces)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- fresh strawberries
- strawberry jam
- prepared pastry shells
- Cook rhubarb and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat for 15-20 minutes. The rhubarb will cook down and become tender – from a celery-type consistency to more of an apple butter consistency
- Meanwhile macerate strawberries with strawberry jam.
- To assemble the tart, spread rhubarb compote into a pre-baked puff pastry shell. Top with strawberries.
