"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Crostata di Fragole
Strawberry Tart
(Crostata di Fragole)

For the Pastry:
11 oz (300 grams) plain white flour
Pinch of salt
5 oz (150 grams) unsalted butter, softened
4 oz (100 grams) superfine sugar
1 egg
3 egg yolks
Grated zest of 1 unwaxed lemon

For the Filling:
10 oz (275 grams) strawberry high fruit content conserve
1 lb (275 grams) strawberries
Icing sugar, for dusting

Put the flour and salt into a bowl with the butter, sugar, egg and egg yolks and lemon zest.

Using your fingertips, knead the ingredients together to form a soft dough.

Wrap in greaseproof paper and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 F. (190 C.)

On a lightly floured surface, roll out three-quarters of the pastry and use to line a 9.5 inch (24 cm.) loose-bottomed flan tin.

Spread with the strawberry conserve.

Roll out the remaining pastry, cut into strips and use to form a lattice on top of the conserve.

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden. Leave to cool in the tin.

Before serving, decorate with the whole strawberries and dust with sifted icing sugar. Serves 6-8.
