Christmas Wreath

On the first day of Christmas
I thought I’d make a wreath
With meringue, so it’s edible, indeed! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

Recipe (a healthy 4-5 portions)

Ingredients

Meringue

  • 6 – Large Eggs
  • 335g – Powdered Sugar
  • A pinch (3g) – Cream of Tartar

Cranberry Jam with Raspberries

  • 200g – Cranberries
  • 150g – Sugar
  • 170g – Raspberries

Other Toppings

  • Whipped Cream
  • Blueberries
  • Mint

Method

Cranberry Jam (can be made well in advance)

  1. Combine cranberries and sugar in a pot and cook them in medium low until the cranberries begin to pop
  2. Taste test and adjust sugar to your liking
  3. Turn the heat to medium and let the water evaporate
  4. Can it or store it in airtight container in the fridge until later use
  5. Combine the cranberry jam with the raspberries and mix them well, if you’re using it as a topping for the pavlova!

Meringue

  1. Preheat oven to 320ยฐF
  2. Add cream of tartar to egg whites
  3. Whip the mixture to stiff peaks while gradually adding the sugar. I went for the manual method and it took me about 2 hours
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment and trace a bowl outline with the egg whites
  5. Use a large spoon, and spoon in the egg whites around the outline in large balls
  6. Bake in the oven for 1 hour (it should still be fairly white, don’t worry about the cracks)
  7. Let the baked meringue cool in the oven for 1 hour or overnight
  8. Top with whipped cream, raspberry jam and raspberries, blueberries, and mint or any other toppings that you like! ๐Ÿ˜
A very merry christmas to you!!
