Cider-Poached Rhubarb Pavlova
Recipe provided by: Taste of Nova Scotia
|6 stalks||rhubarb, cut into pieces|
|1 cup||sugar, divided in half|
|1/4 cup||Bulwark Blush Cider|
|1/2 cup||lilac blossoms|
|1 cup||whipping cream|
|1 tsp||finely chopped parsley|
- For the poached rhubarb, preheat the oven to 400°F. Combine rhubarb, 1/2 cup of sugar and the cider in a 9”x 13” oven-safe casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake until soft, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool, reserving the syrup.
- Combine remaining 1/2 cup of sugar with the lilac blossoms. The longer the lilac sugar sits, the stronger the flavour and aroma of lilac will be. To make the lilac cream, beat whipping cream with 4 Tbsp. of lilac sugar, strained of flowers if desired, until stiff peaks form.
- To assemble, top each meringue with poached rhubarb and syrup and serve with a good dollop of lilac whipped cream.
