Tipperary Kitchen Meringues with Rhubarb and Orange

RECIPE OVERVIEW

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 9 people

  • 1 tsp Arrowroot
  • 125 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 - Crystallised Orange Zest
    to decorate, optional
  • 250 ml Fresh Cream
    whipped
  • 150 ml Orange Juice
  • 1 bunch SuperValu Rhubarb
    pink, trimmed and cut into 2.5cm pieces
  • 2 pack Tipperary Kitchen Marvellous Meringues
  • 150 ml Water
  • 2 tsp Water
    cold

Method

  1. In a shallow stainless steel saucepan, dissolve the sugar in the water over a low heat, then add the orange juice and bring to the boil. 
  2. Add half of the prepared rhubarb and simmer over a gentle heat for about 5 minutes, until just tender but holding its shape. 
  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove and transfer to a shallow bowl. Repeat with the second half of the rhubarb. 
  4. Blend the arrowroot with the 2 teaspoons of cold water, then stir into the warm syrup and bring to the boil. Cook gently, stirring, until the mixture clears and thickens. Add this sauce to the bowl of rhubarb, mix gently and leave to cool. 
  5. When ready to serve, place the meringue nests on a serving plate or place one or two meringues on individual dessert plates. Place a spoonful of whipped cream in each meringue nest, then arrange some rhubarb pieces and sauce on top and around the nests. Sprinkle with crystallised orange zest, if using. 
  6. Serve any remaining rhubarb and cream separately, or if you have any broken meringues, use them to make up a simple rhubarb Eton mess.
