Shortly before Christmas I watched an episode of Nigellal Lawson's cooking show, quite by accident, even though I do love watching her cook, but rarely do. I even have a couple of cook books of her. I was just flipping through channels, when I got stuck on her show.
She was making a mountain out of whipped cream! I LOVE whipped cream, so I guess that's what made me curious.
This is the most delicious dessert, and sooooo very easy to make. I even made the Meringue myself (first time), not perfect but good enough for this purpose. They didn't have to look good, so I just blobbed some heaps on the cooking sheet, and off they went into the oven.
Pomegranates are beautiful to look at. I think I've tasted them once before. I forgot that the kernels have pits in them, but the juice is tart and delicious.
Since I'm the only one who likes whipped cream I made just one portion, which was very hard to do. I really wanted a mountain out of this stuff. I had many meringue left over, so I see this dessert in the near future appearing on my dining room table soon.
After I took the photo I squeezed juice from the other half over it, which did not look too good, but tasted heavenly.
What you need to create this delicious mountain?
Whipped cream, Pomegranate, Meringue (store bought or home made, both good), and a blender.
Want to see how Nigella does it? I found the episode to watch here. Enjoy!
Let me know if you decide to give it a try, and how you liked it!
PS And as Ikki said in the comments, I can see this dessert made with many other fruits as well, especially strawberries! Mmmm.
