Apparently, June is Butter Tart month in Ontario. I don’t know many details about this. For instance, is this the inaugural Butter Tart Month? Will every June from now on be Butter Tart Month? Or is this simply a one-off promotion? However, I am lucky enough to live in a house where there are lots of gluten-free butter tarts. I have managed to eat butter tarts, in some form, every day of June so far (yes, I know it has only been three days). I don’t know how long I can actually keep it up, but I am willing to try. Today, I had two butter tarts for breakfast. Delicious.
Update, June 5, 2014: I have heard back from the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance. It has dubbed June Butter Tart Month in Ontario in an effort to promote the various butter tart experiences available in the province—such as Wellington County’s Butter Tart Trail. OCTA is working on making June officially Butter Tart Month in the future. I can’t help but applaud its efforts.
You can read more about various ways you can celebrate the butter tart here, but the site only has last year’s information.
