Florida Strawberry Tart

Winter is strawberry season in South Florida. Find local berries at Homestead and Redland farmstands – Knaus Berry Farm is a good source for different varieties, such as Festival and Florida Sensation – or pick them yourself (see our U-pick guide online). This simple tart highlights perfect, sweet, flavorful berries, with nothing more than unsweetened cream in a buttery crust, made shiny by a light brush of guava glaze.

Bake tart crust according to recipe and cool completely on rack. Before serving, whip cream in cold bowl just until soft peaks form – do not overbeat. If you want to sweeten the cream, add powdered sugar before beating. Spread on crust. Arrange strawberries atop cream. Heat guava jelly until it melts, then brush gently atop berries. Serve immediately.
