Jalapeno and Mixed Berry Tart


I know it sounds odd.
Just give it a try!

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 ounces butter
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
pinch salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pint cream
4 each egg yolk
2 each egg
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 each orange -- zested and juiced
1 pinch cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg
1 pinch salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 pint blackberries
1/2 pint strawberries
3 each jalapeno

In a food processor pulse together the butter, flour, sugar, salt and vanilla until a corn meal consistency occurs.
Press into greased tart shell and chill.
Mix together cream, eggs, sugar, orange juice, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.
Quarter and halve strawberries and arrange them with the blackberries in the tart shell.
Seed and slice jalapenoes.
Pour custard over berries then sprinkle sliced jalapenoes over the top.
Toss orange zest plus maybe a teaspoon of sugar over that and pop it into a 350 degree oven for about 50 minutes.
Remove from heat when tart is almost set. (still jiggley)
Cool before removing from pan.
