A Christmas Mess

(c) Trevor Hart
This is a delicious recipe for a Christmas flavoured Eton Mess that I wrote (& styled) for a mag which undeservedly ended up on the cutting room floor! What a yummy scrummy shame...

Christmas Eton Mess

Eton Mess usually screams summertime as it is full of fresh strawberries and raspberries. As it is Christmas, why not try this version using mince pie meat and cranberry sauce. It is really quick and fun to make and a great way of using up leftovers.

Lightly whip 500ml of double cream to soft peaks. Break 8 meringue nests over and stir gently through. Ripple through 75g of mince meat and 50g of cranberry sauce. Divide between 8 pretty bowls or glasses and scatter over 50g of toasted almonds to serve.
