Tart With Fruit And Meringue
- December 4, 2021
I should've followed my instinct and made my own meringue ...The curd does not fully set after 8 hours (!).The only part of this tart that turned out great was my pie crust b/c I used my own recipe and didn't follow this one.Curd in this recipe is way too soft and butter-rich for my liking in a pie.It's tasty in small amounts (like a spoonful on toast, berries, or ice cream) but for the volume you eat in a piece of pie I prefer a firmer, tarter version, more like the filling in a homemade lemon meringue pie.Cooked passion fruit pulp has a slight bitter aftertaste, though, so I'll probably work on that issue in V3.0.Also there are much better Italian meringue recipes out there: I think the proportions/volumes may be off in this one.I too, upped the passion fruit puree and cut down on the sugar.I'm sure the butter is good, but just can't afford all those calories.Well, I must say flavor was good, a little overwhelmed by all the buttery taste but still delicious.It felt more like a cookie but combined with the curd tasted very good.I used A Cook from Chicago's modifications and thought this was fantastic.When I made the curd the first time, it was too sweet and it did not have enough passion-fruit flavor.These changes made all of the difference and the result was a fantastic tart.It was delicious and the passion fruit makes it very unique.I thought there was a bit too much meringue on top though. .

Sesame Passion Fruit Yuzu Tart with Meringue Swirls
I actually conceived and shot this passion fruit yuzu tart back in late November with the intention of starting off the new year with this post.The dominating tang is often too sharp and somehow the sugar added to “balance” the acid never seems to do enough to improve.I am never one to shrink away from flavors that challenge me so I set out to make a tart that I could love – multidimensional with elements that would round and balance the sour and sweet.The perfect inspiration came when on a trip to the store I found something I have only ever seen bottled, fresh yuzu.If you are ever able to get your hands on fresh yuzu fruit – immediately scratch the skin, put it up to your nose, and breath in deeply with eyes closed.Next, I found the most gorgeous dinosaur egg passion fruits that I wanted to photograph.The intense tropical fragrance of passion fruit and the pop of the seeds would add another dimension to my tart.I then needed something to round out the sharpness of both fruits and the sweet meringue I planned to top this tart with.Something creamy like white chocolate came to mind and for an earthiness to ground this dessert, I decided toasted sesame seeds would be the perfect addition.Needless to say the tart never set and disastrous amounts of precious yuzu passion fruit custard leaked all over my refrigerator shelf.My standard method of freestyle cooking and improvisational baking led to watery meringue that began to melt as soon as I brought it on set to be torched.The final recipe for this tart is baked guaranteeing a properly set custard.Scoop the passion fruit pulp into a sieve over a bowl and separate the seeds from the juice.Add the yuzu and passion fruit juices, 1/2 cup sugar, bring to a gentle simmer, fold in the sesame seeds.Slowly pour the hot white chocolate mixture over the eggs, whisking continuously, until well blended.Remove from heat, whisk at high speed with a hand mixer until glossy and stiff peaks are reached, about 5 minutes.Top the cooled tart with dollops of the meringue, gently swirl and pick up for tips. .
