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.

Eton Mess

  1. Crush meringues into small pieces and place in a dessert bowl.
  2. Whip some cream and small amount of sugar and spoon a few dobs on top
  3. 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.

  1. It may be called Eton mess – but it looks fabulous. My kind of dessert. Too early for those berries here – and month or so. I’m making this Mess. Virginia
