  • Black grapes 6 to 8

  • Preheat oven to 180º C.
  • To make the tart shells, sieve together flour and salt into a deep bowl. Add the chilled butter and rub it into the flour with your fingertips till it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add sufficient ice cold water and knead lightly into a dough. Cover the bowl with cling film and keep it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Take the dough out of the refrigerator, keep it on the worktop and roll out into 3 mm thick sheet.
  • Cut into roundels with a fluted cookie cutter and line the tart moulds with them. Prick with a toothpick so that the dough does not puff while baking.
  • Keep them on a baking tray, keep the tray in the preheated oven for 7-10 minutes.
  • Take the tray out of the oven and set aside to cool.
  • To make the custard sauce, mix custard powder and a little milk in a little bowl.
  • Heat the remaining milk with castor sugar in a non-stick pan and when it begins to boil, add the custard powder mixture and mix well and cook, stirring continuously till the mixture thickens.
  • Halve all the gapes and strawberries. Chop the kiwi.
  • Fill the tarts with some custard sauce and then garnish it with mixed fruits and serve immediately.
