Nutritional values

The fruit is not bedded on cream or butter cream, but on quark; there is also no sugar - that's what makes the tartlets so light. Thanks to the dark chocolate in the base, you can fill up on good-luck messengers and stress killers for your mood as well as bioactive substances that are good for your arteries and heart.

The harvest time for mirabelle plums begins in August. Out of season, pitted light grapes (cut in halves) or bananas (cut in slices and turned in a little lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown) are recommended for the tarts.
