Jenny’s Onion Tart inspired by Outlander novel Voyager

Jenny’s Onion Tart - Outlander on Starz S3E8

I caught up with her just outside the barn; she heard my step behind her and turned, startled. She glanced about quickly, but saw we were alone. Realizing that there was no way of putting off a confrontation, she squared her shoulders under the woolen cloak and lifted her head, meeting my eyes straight on.

“I thought I’d best tell Young Ian to unsaddle the horse,” she said. “Then I’m going to the root cellar to fetch up some onions for a tart. Will ye come with me?”

“I will.” Pulling my cloak tight around me against the winter wind, I followed her into the barn.

Voyager, chapter 38, “I Meet a Lawyer”

We’re headed back to Lallybroch this week, to see Jenny and her gang of Murrays. I think most of us know there’s someone else we’re going to meet, but I’ll hold off on naming names just for the now, and instead focus on Claire and Jenny’s reunion, which promises to be tense - at least at first.

The recipe for Jenny’s Onion Tart is here, as well as in Outlander Kitchen: The Official Outlander Companion Cookbook.

Happy eating, and watching!

Theresa, I am a bit late in relaying my thanks. I made the Chicken in the Heather with the Cauliflower, Whisky and Cheese and Gingerbread and Fresh Crud for my viewing group last Sunday. Totally RAVE reviews! from the five at the table. I doubled the entree & side recipes and barely had enough to bring one serving home for my hubby. One friend is planning to make the chicken for Thanksgiving! One of the men said the only improvement he could suggest would be to double the sauce. I am having so much fun cooking from OK this season!! We all are. Another cook made the Randall's Spaghetti & meatballs with local meats. I roll my eyes in memory. Just THANK YOU for being inspired by DG's books and for sharing with all of us!! oh, I also made LJ's upside down plum cake twice. Once for viewing and once for my mom in law's 91st birthday. I think I will make just the cake (love that orange flavor!) this winter. All three of us women have bought copies of your book. YUM!


Judy, thank you so much for taking the time to write and tell me what you've been up to in your kitchen! I adore hearing everybody's stories about cooking and feasting together. My heart sings.
