Rhubarb tart with orange-ginger glaze

  • Time cookingtime: 30 min
  • Yield Serves: 6


    1 cup fresh orange juice
    1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    1/2 cup sugar
    3/4 pound red rhubarb stalks, unpeeled and thinly sliced diagonally (1/8 inch)
    1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from a 17 1/4-ounces package), thawed
    1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest

    Accompaniment: vanilla ice cream


    Preheat oven to 400°F with rack in middle.
    Stir together orange juice, grated ginger, lime juice, and sugar in a bowl. Add rhubarb and let stand, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes.
    Meanwhile, cut pastry in half lengthwise, then roll out each piece into an 11-by 7-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface with a floured rolling pin. Arrange pastry rectangles side by side on an ungreased large baking sheet.
    Make a 1/2-inch border around each pastry rectangle by lightly scoring a line parallel to each edge. Prick pastry inside border all over with a fork.
    Strain rhubarb mixture through a sieve set over a bowl, reserving liquid. Top 1 pastry rectangle (within border) with half of rhubarb, overlapping slices slightly. Repeat with remaining pastry and rhubarb.
    Bake until pastry is puffed and golden (underside of pastry should also be golden), about 30 minutes.
    Meanwhile, boil reserved rhubarb liquid in a small saucepan, skimming foam if necessary, until reduced to about 1/4 cup, 15 to 18 minutes. The glaze will become medium thick
    Transfer tarts to a rack. Brush rhubarb and pastry with glaze and sprinkle with zest.
