3 ready made meringue nests

350g / 12oz of fresh strawberries

4 tbsp dry white wine

85g / 3oz caster sugar

Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

284 mil carton of double cream

Icing sugar for dusting


Three strawberries Break the meringues into pieces in a bowl.  Hull and cut the strawberries into quarters and put 50g / 9 oz into the bowl.

In a large bowl, stir together the wine, sugar, lemon zest and juice until the sugar has dissolved.  Using a whisk, gradually whisk in the cream until the mixture holds the whisk's shape.

Spoon the cream mixture into the meringues and strawberries, gently stirring together.  Do not over mix or the cream will turn pink.  Spoon into a serving bowl, scatter with strawberries and chill.  Dust with icing sugar just before serving.
