Summer Lemon Curd Tart - An Edible Transit of Venus
Wednesday June 6, 2012
It's funny the way almost anything can inspire a cooking project. Yesterday I watched the very rare Transit of Venus. So I'm thinking... mmmm... Lemon tart with blueberry transit. And voila... an edible science project. Check it out!
For anyone that has missed the news in the past few days- this event occurs in pairs every 105 years. So if you missed the one yesterday, the next one occurs in 2117- mark it on your calendar. In the meantime, we can eat Transit of Blueberry tart to compensate.
Lemon curd works perfectly to represent the Sun, and what better to pair with lemon than fresh blueberries. Lemon curd is one of my favourite things by the way. I could eat this straight from the jar- deliciously tart and refreshing. I also included some more pictures of past lemon curd tarts I have made to give some ideas about how you can serve it.
