Strawberry Lime Pavlova - JFI Strawberries

Doubtless God could have made a better berry (than the strawberry), but doubtless God never did.
-- William Allen Butler


6 egg whites
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
2/3 cup sugar
1 ½ cup whipping cream
3 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 lime
Icing sugar to dust

Preheat the oven to, 275°F. Line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment. Make the meringue by whisking the egg whites with cream of tartar in a very clean dry bowl with an electric whisk for 4-5 minutes until thick. Whisk in the caster sugar a tablespoon at a time, allowing 20 seconds in between each one, until all the sugar is combined. Place the meringue in a large piping bag with a star nozzle. Pipe a disc, 12in (30cm) in diameter, onto the baking parchment of one baking sheet and pipe another disc, 8in (20cm) in diameter, onto the other. Place in the oven for approximately 2 hours or until the meringue has dried out and starts to color. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Peel away the baking parchment and place the large meringue on a serving dish, spread whipped cream and cover with sliced strawberries. Place the smaller meringue on top and decorate with the remaining strawberries. Grate the zest of the lime with a fine grater all over the top of the meringue and dust with icing sugar, decorate with lime wedges.

Strawberry Lime Pavlova looks absolutely delicious. The decoration is stunning !!

The recipe is so simple but i dont think i can do this kind of decoration, needs a hell a lot of practice.

Manisha said...

I think all the pictures on the various web sites, including the wiki on pavlovas, need to be replaced with your creation.

To say exquisite would be an understatement!

Thank you, Kiwi pavlovas are so good, i just love it the most perhaps. Berry brings in a deifferent kind of flavor, you can always go down on the amount of lemon you are adding, to fit it to your taste.

Thank you, you are always very kind. Come on over, and take the whole plate.

Thank you

Thank you, i am flattered.

Thank you, i am sure you can do it, it is easy and fun !!

Thank you, i am soaking garbanzo beans right now, for falafel. I repeat, you can do it, and do it very well.

If i tell you that i am flattered,that's going to be an understatement. Thank you very much

Thank you

Thank you for your kind words.

Shoma & Vidhu,
