Fall Recipe Series: Caramel Nut Tart
In the latest post on The Brunette Baker blog featuring our new favourite recipe Caramel Nut Tart, Jenny Jack shares 10 random things about herself. Before we get to the baking, we’re going to join the game, and share 10 fun facts about Stirling Creamery!
- Stirling Creamery is located in Stirling, Ontario – approx. 30 miles north of Belleville.
- The Creamery was established in 1925 – yep, a whole 91 years ago!
- Despite being a relatively small, local operation, our butters are available all across Canada!
- We barrel churn our butters – this means it’s never ‘overworked’ and results in a richer flavour
- For the last 30 years, master butter maker Chet Blair oversees each batch of butter!
- Our butters are award-winning!
- We don’t add chemicals, antibiotics, or preservatives to our products – it’s all natural, all the time.
- As well as using standard fresh sweet cream, we like to get innovative! Our Farmhouse butter is made using using whey, and we often experiment with compound butters and added flavours.
- You can find us on the supermarket shelves, but did you know your local restaurant or bakery might use our butters too? We’ve a product for every menu!
- Two Words: Butter Coffee! We teamed up with local coffee shops across Toronto and created custom recipes using Stirling Creamery butters – and customers loved it!
- BONUS FACT! Stirling Creamery is soon to become part of the GayLea Foods Co-Operative. Don’t worrry though; nothing else is changing. 90+ years of history, all for better butter!
That’s enough about us – lets skip to the fun stuff! This month, we’ve been collecting some of our favourite seasonal recipes for our Fall Recipe Series. Next up is this stunningly beautiful – and equally tasty – Caramel Nut Tart.
Looks good right? It tastes EVEN BETTER! Jenny uses Stirling Creamery unsalted butter, cold and cubed, to create the perfect shortcrust pastry. A little more butter in the filling results in a rich flavour, and creamy indulgent texture throughout. You can add a drizzle of chocolate over the top if you want to get really decadent, but we think this dessert is perfect just the way it is.
