Chocolate Ganache Strawberry Tart

by Rebekahcooked up on June 22, 2016

My goodness, it is already mid-June. How did that happen? My peas are producing like crazy, my spinach has bolted, and the very first baby tomatoes are on the vine. I always wish summer would go more slowly, except for the tomato part. Those, I would like to be ready yesterday. I can’t wait to eat my first juicy homegrown tomato BLT and/or my first big heirloom tomato slice slathered in olive oil, burrata and salt. It’s gonna be so great. And it’s only like… a month away or something. :/

Speaking of seasonality, listen, I know technically it’s a little late for strawberries in the Pacific Northwest, but I’m not done eating them yet. Also, we froze something like four pounds, so I can eat them for a long time yet, and I’m gonna do just that.

Ganache is one of my favorite things to drizzle on food, coat bites of food, and frost food. But my favorite thing about it is when it’s the star of the show. Like in this strawberry ganache tart.

When there are two people in your house, sometimes about 6 slices into the cake/pie/whatever you get tired of it. The dessert starts to age a little, it gets soggy, or you just get bored. Not this one. I’m surprised it lasted as long as it did, frankly.
