Author Notes: Today I did a wine tasting with lunch. For dessert I decided to make my basic meringue and add a few special touches. I used Amanda's strawberries with a kick and had rave reviews. The man seated next to me was (I thought )moaning but he informed me that he was purring!dymnyno

Serves 6

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • whipping cream, whipped with or without sugar(the meringue and strawberries are pretty sweet)
  • the best semi-sweet chocolate, grated with a microplaner (about 2tbs)
  • fresh strawberries that have been husked and sliced in half.
  • 6 tbs amanda's Preserved Strawberries with Chiles recipe on Food52
  • black pepper
  1. Using the first 4 ingredients make the meringue (see my basic meringue) recipe on food52
  2. Put a large spoonful of meringue batter on parchment or silpat on a baking sheet and smooth with a spoon to make a circular base. Repeat to make 6 meringues.
  3. Sprinkle some of the micro-planed chocolate on each meringue and bake in a 275 degree oven for about 35 minutes. Turn off oven and leave for 15 minutes.
  4. Put a spoonful of Amanda's Preserved Strawberries with Chiles on each meringue.
  5. Put a dollop of whipped cream on each meringue. Then put a small handfull of fresh strawberries on each.
  6. Then put another dollop of whipped cream.
  7. Finally, sprinkle a little more grated chocolate and crank a few turns of black pepper on top of the whipped cream.

Love this! I've now made the strawberries with two different chiles and have them put up in jars - this looks like a great idea for dessert with one of those jars.

I love when we take each other's recipes and make our own variations--I love meringue--this sounds great.

Amanda's strawberries were just what my recipe needed. It is fun to link recipes.

I agree--I did that with 2 flourless chocolate cakes a few months ago.
