Layered Meringue and Rose Cups


1 packet meringues

4 tablespoons Beerenberg Strawberry & Rose Jam

2 tablespoons water

1 punnet Beerenberg strawberries

1 cup thickened cream

1 tablespoon rose water*

1 tablespoon vanilla sugar

Red food colouring

Rose-flavoured fairy floss*

Fresh mint sprigs


Use your hands to gently crumble meringues. Place Beerenberg Rose Petal Jelly and water in a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring constantly to dissolve jelly. Slice the Beerenberg strawberries into a bowl, pour the warm jelly mixture over and leave to cool to room temperature.

Place the cream, rose water and vanilla sugar in a bowl and whip until thick, adding red colouring a drop or two at a time until the cream is a rosy pink colour.

Into serving glasses place a layer of meringue pieces, then a layer of cream, then a layer of strawberry mixture. Repeat the layers then decorate with a swirl of fairy floss and mint sprig.

*Rose water and rose fairy floss available at good supermarkets and gourmet food stores.
