The Picnic Game....would you like some Eton Mess?

It's that time of year again at Louise's site, Months of Edible Celebrations! This is the fifth year she has organized this event....come join in.




As I selected the letter E, I will be bringing a dish which starts with the that letter. Before I share the goodies, I will list what others brought (those whose letters preceded me).


I'm going on a picnic, and I'm bringing...

Aloo Gobi,
Blueberry Cumberland Salsa,
Crispy Curry Fried Chicken,
Dying for Chocolate Cake and

Eton Mess - Here is the latest creation of Eton Mess.




This is a photo I use for my site badge…feel free to grab it if you’d like a photo link...it's available here on my site. See, look to your right.



Couldn’t be easier to make and what a delicious way to use up fresh strawberries.

Ingredients

4 cups strawberries
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
2 teaspoons pomegranate juice
2 cups whipping cream
1 packet individual meringue nests
Directions

Hull and chop the strawberries and put into a bowl and add the sugar and pomegranate juice and leave to macerate while you whip the cream.
Whip the cream in a large bowl until thick but still soft. Roughly crumble in 4 of the meringues nests - you will need chunks for texture as well as a little fine dust.
Take out about half a cupful of the chopped strawberries, and fold the meringue cream and rest of the fruit mixture together.
Arrange on 4 serving plates or glasses or in a mound, and top each with some.

It’s a light tasting summery dessert you should try at least one time. Bet you will want it again sometime. We love it.

Hope you all are well and I have enjoyed reconnecting with those of you (you know who you are) who have been absent from the blogging world!


I have some book reviews coming up soon as well as snaps of some outings we enjoyed during vacation.

Eton Mess? Was this a pudding served at Eton? Definitely not a mess, but a cool dessert for the picnic :-)

Tina said...

Thank you, I Wilkerson, it's a lovely messy treat :-)

Janet, I am uncertain of the origin of the name, good nevertheless!
