Instructions
For the fresh strawberry jam
  1. Wash the strawberries under cold running water; drain them thoroughly, remove them to a paper-towel lined plate to dry. Stem and halve them just before cooking.
  2. Make a simple syrup by boiling brown sugar and water together for 5' in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, until it thickens.
  3. Put the strawberries in the saucepan, turn the heat down to medium-low, and allow them to simmer gently for about 15'.
  4. Split and scrape the vanilla seeds from the bean. Add the seeds into the saucepan. Simmer for about 5'. Remove from the heat, and leave to cool to room temperature.
For the tart crust
  1. In large bowl mix the flour with the baking powder, brown sugar, salt, and vanilla seeds. Pour the water and the sunflower seed oil into the bowl. Knead until it comes together and can be rolled into a ball.
  2. Divide the pastry in half. Place one half between two sheets of parchment paper, roll out the pastry. To line the tart, remove one sheet of the parchment paper and place the pastry side down in a 23cm tart tin. Press down gently on the bottom and sides, and then trim off any excess pastry. Put some cling film over the tart tin. Allow it to chill for at least 30'.
  3. Place the other half between two sheets of parchment paper, and roll out the pastry. Cut out pastry hearts using a 6cm heart-shaped cookie cutter. Put some cling film over them, and allow them to chill for at least 30'.
For the tart
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F).
  2. Prick the crust with a fork before baking.
  3. Place your fresh strawberry jam into the pastry-lined tin.
  4. Pop the pastry hearts on top.
  5. Bake for about 40', until the pastry is golden and the filling is starting to bubble a little.
  6. Leave the tart to cool in the tin, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Valentine's Day decoration
  1. Using a sharp paring knife stem and hull some fresh strawberries. Slice them lengthwise, and cut a V-shaped notch on top of the berry and remove the berry's core. Decorate your tart with heart-shaped strawberry slices.

How To Scrape the Seeds from a Vanilla Bean

To split a vanilla bean open, use a small, sharp paring knife and cut from one tip to the other. Carefully separate the two long, flat sides and scrape the seeds into the dish you're preparing. Save the pods for steeping or grinding to powder, or use them to make vanilla sugar.
