Strawberry Glory for SHF #45
I like to make meringues in the summer, they go well with the fruits that are available and you can store them in an airtight container for a good few weeks, if not longer.
Balsamic vinegar is the perfect partner to strawberries, and when I read that Brilynn was roasting her strawberries with balsamic, I had to give it a go. More than one go, three goes actually!
Can I say... A M A Z I N G?
Last week, on the F Word, Gordon Ramsay made a dessert called Strawberry Glory. He fried his strawberries with some icing sugar and balsamic vinegar, then layered them in a glass with meringues and crème pâtissière. Here's my version.
Layer the following in a glass:
Brilynn's Balsamic roasted strawberries (which she adapted from Zoë Bakes)
Whipping cream that has been whipped to soft peaks
Repeat layers, and add a spoonful of vanilla ice cream on the top.
I am sending the Strawberry Glory over to Susan at Food Blogga, who is hosting this month's Sugar High Friday - the theme is berries. This event was created by Jennifer at The Domestic Goddess. You can see all the previous themes here.
The meringue photo is my entry into this month's Snackshots, hosted by Michelle at Greedy Gourmet.
