Eton mess is a dessert of English origin consisting of a mixture of strawberries, pieces of meringue and cream, which is traditionally served[ at Eton College's annual prize-giving celebration picnic on the "Fourth of June" - actually celebrated on the last Wednesday in May.
- 4 - 6 medium size Meringues
- 450g Fresh Strawberries
- 1 Rounded Tablespoon of Icing Sugar
- 570ml Double Cream
Assemble the dessert by breaking the meringues into 2.5cm peices and mixing with the reserved strawberries. Next fold in the cream and make sure all is well combined. Next fold in two tablespoons of the purée to achieve a marble effect. Place the mixture in a large serving dish or individual dishes and spoon over the remaining purée.
