I´m here again and I´m experimenting new things … all right, I haven´t made any exotic dish from a distant land with a secret recipe handed down from generation to generation … no, it´s only a red fruits tart, I think that one of the most common kinds of tart, but for me this is the first 🙂
I’ve also used an ingredient that I hadn´t employed ever before, and in principle, I didn´t have much hope of it: frozen berries … Why? …, because they are much cheaper than fresh and because the frozen company where I bought them are famous here in Paris and I think in France in general. They have everything, including meals prepared… and I mean things like «scallop dish with shrimp cream sauce and vegetables» and other stuffs like that… I have to try it one day 🙂
The fact is that the red fruits turned out to be a pleasant surprise … all right, I’m not going to cheat, I wouldn´t use them to make a fruit salad but they are perfect to include them in a tart, and the best thing: they aren´t bland ! On the contrary they have given an amazing flavor to the cake!

1/2 teaspoon salt
175 g sugar
120 ml milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
400 g of red fruits (blackberries, raspberries, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, … whatever you want!) If you want you can use fresh fruit, but if you can not because of the price or because they are out of season, … don´t doubt it, use frozen fruits!
