FOOD: Eton Mess

Traditional English summer dessert made with crushed meringues, strawberries and whipped cream.

Ingredients:

  • 500g strawberries
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pomegranate juice OR Balsamic vinegar
  • 500ml whipping cream
  • 4 x small meringue nests from a packet

How?:

1. Hull and chop the strawberries and put into a bowl. Add the sugar and pomegranate juice and leave to macerate while you whip the cream.

2. Whip the cream in a large bowl until thick but still soft.

3. Roughly crumble in four meringue nests — you will need chunks for texture, as well as a little fine dust.

4. Take out a ladleful, or about 100g of the chopped strawberries and fold the meringued cream and the rest of the fruit mixture together.

5. Arrange on four serving plates or glasses, or in a mound, and top each with some of the remaining
strawberries.
