Rise of the Monster Meringues
First we had a cupcake fest, then it was pretty coloured
macaroons and whoopie pies, well now there’s a new sweet treat on
the table: the monster meringue! If you want your dinner party to be
bang on trend, serve huge, fluffy pillows of meringue the size of
dinner plates, sprinkling them with dried berries or chopped nuts.
Chef Yotam Ottolenghi has been credited with making meringues
stylish, but the Meringue Girls (meringuegirls.co.uk) have taken
things to a whole new level with their amazing
creations. What are you waiting for?
You’ve got all the eggs you need.
Surely you’re yolking
And still on the meringue theme,
and to be sure you don’t waste
those precious yolks, did you know
that contrary to popular belief you can
freeze them? It’s more successful if you
add either a pinch of salt or sugar before
freezing which prevents the yolks turning
gelatinous. However, label your yolks sweet
or salty – it wouldn’t do to spoil a sponge at
a later date! Defrost in the fridge and
rub the yolks through a fine sieve
before using. They will freeze
for up to 3 months.
