Mini lemon tarts. Could I substitute the lemon

You could also stir some through marscapone and fill your tart cases. I do this with lemon curd too. A little whipped cream piped on top is nice. They looke very professional and I am all for quick easy and impressive.

What is the recipe?

I don't have a recipe, I was just going to cook up some rhubarb and fill the cases instead of the lemon honey.

Stewed rhubarb on its own is quite wet. might leave you with a soggy mush.
I have made butterscotch rhubarb tart that you might be able to do in small tarts. Although it's done with raw pastry not already cooked shells.

I always cook rhubarb and add frozen raspberries to it to use as a topping for my yoghurt. I have used it slightly thickened with a little cornflour and cooled for tarts and it worked fine.

You could make some rhubarb curd and that would work. Plain stewed rhubarb would be too wet.

Thanks davidt4. Would you have a recipe for the curd as that sounds nice.
Thanks for replying

I do, but I'm at the wrong device tonight. I can post it for you tomorrow if nobody else has.

Here you are. This works for most sour fruits.

Fruit Curd

675 g fresh rhubarb/apricots/raspberries/t-
amarillos etc
150 ml lemon juice
4 free-range eggs
450 g sugar
120 g unsalted butter

1. Cook the fruit in a pan with just enough water to prevent the mixture from burning. When soft, push through a strainer into a medium-sized mixing bowl, pressing down on the fruit with a wooden spoon. Throw away any skins and seeds left in the strainer.

2. Beat the eggs lightly and pour into a small saucepan with the sugar, fruit puree, lemon juice, sugar and butter.

3. Cook the mixture over low-medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes or until it thickens.

4. Remove from the heat and cool.
