Roasted Pineapple with honey and pistachios, pineapple curd filled meringue cups with toasted coconut
I went a little nuts with dessert. Too many cooking shows I guess. Today, I thought, is the day I will learn how to make Meringues! Hmmm… Then I will tackle a fancy plating! Hmmm… Well, it came out delicious if not photogenic.
We made meringue cups with our new silicone molds, then, oh yeah I made pineapple curd. (1st time making a curd too!). Spears of pineapple were roasted in a sauce of pineapple juice, dark brown sugar, and honey.
To plate it, the roasted pineapple got a drizzle of yogurt, a sprinkle of chopped pistachios, and a bit of fresh mint. The meringue cups sat tilted on a bed of toasted coconut and were filled with the pineapple curd spilling out.
This dessert pulled up all the Pineapple notes in the wine.
