Grapefruit Tart (and Tartlets)







A harvest of grapefruits one lovely summer day meant that the fruits had to be put to good use.  A previous play on lemon tart yielded good results - this time, the experiment was to substitute the grapefruits for the lemons. A choice too safe, you'd think, especially for this adventurous cook! But there were some folks coming over and I can't risk serving a completely untested recipe!

So grapefruit tart it is.

I just followed the same steps as per the previous recipe, and just directly substituted the juice of 3 grapefruits instead of lemon juice. Since this grapefruit was slightly sweet, the result was also quite nice.



the pastry rolled out and into the tart tin


Well, one big tart and 3 tartlets  :p



bake it blind at 180C for around 15 minutes






let cool for a bit and serve with a dusting of icing sugar and vanilla ice cream

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
