Pomegranate Eton Mess

Eton Mess is a traditional English dessert comprised of whipped cream, meringues, and strawberries. As a nod to the Fall season, I have replaced the strawberries with pomegranate seeds. The result, a crunchy spoonful of heaven. I served this in our Sukkah this weekend and every bowl was scraped clean!

It is the easiest thing to prepare, especially if you use store-bought meringues as I did from Trader Joe’s. If not, I have included my
Coffee Meringue recipe here; just skip the espresso powder and you’re good to go.

We actually have a pomegranate tree in our yard and it bore many pomegranates this year! I harvested them and we enjoyed the delectable seeds in salads and yogurt parfaits, and of course, in this incredible dessert.

  1. Chill a bowl and beaters in the freezer or fridge.
