Strawberry Thyme Tart with Mint Glaze

[Photograph: Sarah Baird]

A free-form strawberry tart flavored with thyme and drizzeled with a mint syrup.

Note: The key to success with this tart is a counter-intuitive one: do not use strawberries that are at their ripest. These strawberries contain more water than is necessary for the tart, and will leave you with a soggy bottom crust. Instead, use still firm strawberries, which will soften during baking.
