LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Chef Anne Kelt, owner of Hick and Frog Bistro in Longview shares with us a luscious, light and airy dessert full of delicious fresh berries! This is a dessert we can enjoy all summer long.
Eton Mess (serves four):
- 1 lb red berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and/or blackberries)
- Granulated sugar to taste
- 1 ¾ cups heavy cream
- Meringue cookies (coarsely chopped or crushed)
Cook red berries with sugar to taste over medium heat until berries release their juices and start breaking down. Strain mixture in a fine-mesh sieve. Set solids aside in a bowl, pour juices back into pan, and reduce over medium-low heat until thickened, about 15 minutes. Pour thickened juices over solids in bowl, and refrigerate until cool.
Beat heavy cream with sugar to taste to soft peaks.
