British berry season
LONDON – With summer here, berries are now in season and taste fantastic. I love the different varieties. There’s so much that you can make with berries. Jam is on my to do list. But first I decided to make a British classic – Eton mess. It’s so simple and so good. My guests didn’t waste any time in eating this dessert.
- Crush meringues into small pieces and place in a dessert bowl.
- Whip some cream and small amount of sugar and spoon a few dobs on top
- Sprinkle liberally with berries.
According to google, Eton mess is traditionally served at Eton College’s annual cricket game against Harrow School.
Note: A true Eton mess is served with strawberries. But it’s just as good with any type of berry really.
