Fourth of July tart

Happy Independence Day! Or does saying that reveal me as unAmerican? Whatever, have a good day ...

This jam tart is slightly undercooked to keep it white, and will be accompanied by a sauce (the sort that restaurants call coulis) made from blackcurrants. Red white and blue, plus stars. I think - but no doubt there'll be plenty of people to correct me - that today's all about the flag.

PS you need to know that I shamelessly stole the idea for this tart from Amanda at Little Foodies, who is cyber-circling the world in food, complete with geography lessons for her children, because, just at the moment, it's the only way she can travel. This week, for obvious reasons, she's in America.

Happy 4th! Great festive tart for the occasion. We'll be grilling steaks tonight and hoping the fireworks displays aren't cancelled due to all the RAIN we've been having here! Off to the neighborhood golf cart parade this morning!

Hope your fireworks went ahead. Here the ground is sodden with rain, the river is running extremely fast, which makes rowing difficult and slow - but, at the moment, the sun is shining. I'm off to the regatta this morning, to watch all "my" oarsmen rowing. Fingers crossed

Oh I'd love to watch the regatta!
I'd call your tart red white and blue! and well done.

Terrible weather for the regatta. Hope it's not making it too miserable. How did they get on?

p.s. lovely tart... heehee!
