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.
A bit of fun - There's a 'books and gardens' meme over at Cornflower Books. Do have a go at it yourself.
