I had procured a rather significant amount of raspberries, cherries and apricots whilst driving through the Okanagan Valley and these seemed like an excellent way to use up some of them. ‘Twas my first time making tarts and I haven’t quite sorted how to make them look as neat as I would like, but they were quite delicious.
