Long Description to add
This is the recipe to make when there's a real glut of ripe strawberries. It's a much nicer way to conserve them than simply freezing them. The granita looks like sparkling jewels when you serve it in tall glasses.
This wonderful summery compote is a great way to use up a glut of fruit if you grow your own or find some reduced in the shops. The joy of it is that you can use any fruit you like.

This has to be one of the easiest fruit tarts to make in the world. The filling is essentially gooseberries and custard set in a pastry crust. I have found that a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar somehow really gives an added flavour dimension...
