How To Make Strawberry Tartlets Without Baking
Have you ever tried making strawberry tartlets without baking? No? Well, it´s time to try it. You can make this recipe for 2 or more persons depending on how many you need. You don´t have to bake as you only have to buy a prebaked tartlet crusts from the shop. This recipe is good especially if you want to have an easy but delicious dessert for your meal. No need to bake but you have to heat the jelly you needed to put on top of the strawberries.
I used red wine jelly for glazing the strawberry tartlets as I still had the bottle of red wine jelly in my fridge. I did not like it for spreading on my bread and so I thought why not use it for my baking. This red wine jelly was a gift made by my creative and nice brother-in-law.
You don´t have to use red wine jelly for glazing your tartlets. You can use another fruit jelly for the glaze.

Strawberry Farm Open For The Public
- How to Store Strawberries in the Freezer
Summer time is harvesting time for strawberries. This article is about how to store your fresh strawberries in the freezer.
Summer is fast approaching and it is time for me to harvest some strawberries in a strawberry farm open for the public. I love harvesting strawberry with my friend and her small children for our own enjoyment. While harvesting, we could eat some of the strawberries without them being counted.
We just go there in the strawberry farm, the owner weight our bowl or basket before we go to the fields. When we have finished harvesting, the weight of the bowl or basket will be deducted to the kilos of strawberries we have to pay. Of course, self harvesting strawberries is more fun than just buying these fruits in the market. Besides that, it is cheap.
Have you harvested strawberries in a farm for fun? I hope you have. Thanks for reading this hub. Enjoy your day!
