Strawberry Balsamic Tart

  • 1 sheet prepared puff pastry
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • about 16-20 larger strawberries (washed, hulled and halved)
  • 5-10 mint leaves

Roll out puff pastry just enough to ensure it’s even. Crimp the edges to form a little barrier. Line the pastry with the strawberries. In a medium saucepan over medium heat reduce the vinegar by about half. It should be thick and sweet. Remove from heat. Whisk in honey. Use a pastry brush to cover the berries with the sauce. Bake at 400 until the pastry is crispy and golden, about 20 minutes. Tear up mint and sprinkle over the top. Serve warm.
