  • 600ml pot double cream

Method

  1. In a large bowl, break up the meringues into bite-size pieces.
  2. Whip the cream until it holds its shape, but take care not to over-beat, then whisk in the rose water.
  3. Just before serving, fold the crushed meringue and cream together. Stir through the strawberries, leaving a few to garnish. Alternatively, make layers of meringue mixture and strawberries in a tall glass bowl or in individual tall wine or dessert glasses. Finish with rose petals scattered on top, if you like.

This was delicious: fresh, sweet and incredibly summery! I make it with the Ultimate Meringue and never fails to please:)

Wanted to use up the rosewater I had in my cupboard for ages. Don't think it added anything extra to the mess. Prefer other receipes.
