bruleed quark tark with berries

400g Quark
2 eggs
½ cup honey
2 tbs Demerara sugar
½ tsp lime juice
1 cup of mixed berries, fresh or frozen
24 - 3” tart shells
granulated sugar for bruléed tops

Place tart shells on a large baking sheet. Parbake for 8 minutes at 375-degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine quark, eggs, honey, sugar and lime juice. Beat until smooth. Fold in berries. Divide mixture among tart shells and continue baking at 300-degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool completely.

Lightly sprinkle granulated sugar over the tops of each of the tarts. Using a kitchen torch, gently wave the flame over the sugar until it melts and caramelizes.

Where to find it: For incomparable quark, visit Gort’s Gouda Cheese Farm in Salmon Arm. Torches for use in the kitchen are available in kitchen supply stores and department stores.
