Rhubarb and almond cream tart

Spring is slowly setting in and brings with it some interesting fruits like strawberries but also rhubarb.

It's a fruit that I particularly like because there was some in my garden when I was little and my mother made delicious jams with it.

I like its tangy side which brings us out of our winter and awakens our taste buds.

Today I offer you a recipe for rhubarb and almond cream tart.

And to avoid waste, we will even make a delicious rhubarb lemonade with the peelings.
