Strawberry Eton Mess


I love making Eton Mess. It is messy, easy to make, can be made ahead and still makes a pretty looking dessert. During the previous month of Ramadhan, I made quite a lot of  Pavlova for order and there were times I had extra bits of meringue.
 My boys get pretty annoyed when I hide meringue to make Eton Mess. But then again they love this dessert.

Strawberries seem to be in season. Here in the market, it is being sold quite cheap, so its a good time to make Strawberry Eton Mess. These strawberries are from Egypt according to one vendor.

Make sure to clean the strawberries in warm water, as some are quite grimy. Just wash with regular tap water, fill a bowl with warm water, add the strawberries and just gently wash them.
I used half the strawberries to make a sauce and then the rest is chopped up and mixed with the cream and meringue.
