  • 20g butter

  • 300ml double cream

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 1 pomegranate

  • 3 sticks of rhubarb

  • 6 meringue nests


  1. Stew the rhubarb in a pot over a low heat with the butter, sugar and a splash of water.
  2. When soft and pulpy, cool by placing pan in sink of cold water.
  3. Whip cream.
  4. Stir in the rhubarb, pomegranate seeds and crumbled meringue, and serve.

Handy Hint

I wouldn't make it too far in advance because the longer the meringue sits in the cream the quicker it loses any crunch.

    I appear to have uploaded before correcting my spelling of pomegranate - sorry!

    I love Eton mess in the summer and was looking for a festive alternative so came up with this. It's easy peasy and so pretty with the lovely pink ribbons of rhubarb running through the cream.
