Tamarillo Meringue Log


Ingredients


4 tamarillos 1/3 cup caster sugar 300ml cream 2 tablespoons icing sugar 8 meringue nests (available prepared from your supermarket)


Peel the tamarillos by pouring over boiling water.  Let stand for 5 mins then remove the skins.  Slice the  tamarillos.  Place in a bowl, sprinkle with sugar and stand for 30 minutes.  Puree in a food processor.

Whip the cram and add the icing sugar.  Combine about 4 tablespoons of the puree with the cream.  Place a good spoonful of the cream on 7 of the merinque nests.  Carefully sandwich each one together standing them on one side to form a log.  Place the last unfilled nest at the end.  Chill.

Just before serving, drizzle with some of the remaining puree.  Serves 4-6.
