This Strawberry & Thyme Honey Custard Tart is just the recipe to welcome spring into the neighborhood!
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 5-10 stems fresh thyme
  • 1, pre-made pie crust
  • 1 pint Driscoll's Fair Trade Strawberries, washed
  • ¼ cup Wholesome! organic honey
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
to glaze:
  • ¼ cup strawberry jam
  • 2 tablespoons water
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. In a small saucepan, simmer the milk and thyme until it bubbles. Turn off and cover for 30 minutes.
  3. Press the pie crust into a 6 inch tart pan - you will have leftover pie crust since this is a smaller pie pan than usual. Bake for 10-12 minutes until par-baked. Let cool for 10 minutes, while you cut the strawberries.
  4. Remove the stem of the strawberries straight down with a knife and cut in half lengthwise. Start aligning berries against the tart crust, forming circles with them. Arrange until the pan is filled.
  5. Place tart pan on sheet tray.
  6. Whisk the honey, nutmeg, vanilla, and salt into the milk. Strain the mixture into the whisked eggs and whisk until combined. Strain again. Slowly and carefully pour the mixture over the berries.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until custard is set.
  8. Heat up the glaze by combining jam and water in a small saucepan and then use this to brush over tart. Serve with a sprinkling of extra fresh thyme leave and enjoy!
