Rhubarb Eton Mess

  

May 27, 2015

  • Makes: Serves 6ish.

Ingredients

4-5 rhubarb stalks, chopped

1/2-3/4 cup sugar, plus extra for the cream

about a meringue per person, broken up (or a batch, above)

1 cup heavy (whipping) cream

Directions

1Combine the rhubarb and sugar with about 1/4 cup water in a medium saucepan and cook over medium-high heat until bubbly; continue to cook, stirring often, until the rhubarb breaks down and is very soft. Taste and add more sugar, if it needs it, and set aside to cool.

2Whip the cream with a spoonful of sugar until softly whipped. In a large trifle bowl or individual glass dishes, layer chunks of meringue, stewed rhubarb and whipped cream. Serve immediately, or let sit a few minutes to allow the meringue to soften.
