Meringue islands

Margaret and I made tiramisu on Friday (no photos or recipe, since I am not entirely happy with either) -- which left us with five egg whites. We turned them into meringues, and today I turned those into meringue island desserts, using fresh strawberries and grated chocolate left over from the same tiramisu.

Meringues stacked in a jar

Meringue islands!

Ingredients (two servings):
  • meringues
  • fresh strawberries (approximately 1.5 cups)
  • freshly grated dark chocolate
  • Slice 4-6 of the strawberries thinly and reserve. Place the rest of the strawberries in a food processor or blender, add a teaspoon of sugar (unless the berries are particularly sweet) and a tablespoon of liquid (elderflower cordial, lemon juice, or other fruit juice). Purée.
  • Place the meringues in individual serving bowls and top with strawberry purée, fresh strawberries and grated chocolate.
