INSTRUCTIONS

For the strawberry puree:   

  1. In a saucepan over low heat stir together the strawberries, sugar, orange juice & water. Continue to cook until the strawberries begin to soften & break down, about 5 to 8 minutes.  
  2. Remove from heat & puree using an immersion blender. If you do not have an immersion blender use a food processor or blender. Run the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve & discard the seeds. 
  3. Refrigerate until ready to use. The puree can be made up to 2 days in advance.  

For the filling: 

  1. Add sugar, water, orange juice, orange zest, strawberry puree, salt, cornstarch & egg yolks to a saucepan. Whisk to combine. 
  2. Turn heat to medium-high & continue whisking until the mixture comes to a boil, about 5 minutes.  
  3. Once the mixture thickens, immediately remove it from heat. Whisk in vanilla & butter until silky smooth.  
  4. Divide mixture evenly amongst prepared tart shells & refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.  

For the meringue: 

  1. In a clean glass mixing bowl whisk the egg whites to soft peaks. Very gradually add the sugar followed by the vanilla extract. Continue whisking to stiff peaks. 
  2. Transfer mixture to a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe dollops of meringue over the filling. Toast using a kitchen torch. Garnish with sliced strawberries & sliced orange.
  3. Refrigerate until ready to serve!
