For me, these first, glistening days of spring just merrily call for rhubarb! It can be as simple as simmered with a little honey and poured into a bowl, or it can be dressed up a bit and presented in this lovely (yet still quite simple) French-style tart. Look for rhubarb stems (the leaves are inedible) that haven’t grown too large — they can sometimes be pithy or tough. Remember that rhubarb is extremely tart, so it will need a little sweetener to bring out its succulent flavor.

Ingredients

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425° F.

Line a 9- or 10-inch tart pan with the pastry crust. Trim the edges. Scatter or arrange the rhubarb over the crust. Combine the crème fraîche or cream, eggs and sugar. Pour this mixture over the rhubarb. Sprinkle with Turbinado sugar if you so desire. (This will give it a glittery texture.)

Bake for 10 minutes and then reduce the heat to 350° F. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes more or until rhubarb is tender and the filling is set.

Combine the strawberries with the honey and serve draped over the tart.
