Wild blueberries, also known as myrtilles, grow in the forests and high-elevation pastures of France, where the climate and soil give them robust, juicy flavor. They provide a fun and delicious pastime for many families gathering their annual summertime basketfuls of the crop for tarts, muffins, and, most popularly, homemade confitures. This fresh blueberry tart recipe takes a few hours and three simple steps - pastry, custard, and fruit topping - to create an exceptionally elegant and scrumptious dessert.
