Eton mess

This quick, simple, crowd pleasing dessert is delicious made with our farm shop meringue. A true taste of Summer!


  • 4 meringue nests
  • 400 ml whipping cream - use double cream, Greek yoghurt or vanilla ice cream as an alternative
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar - optional
  • 1 large punnet of fresh strawberries (500g) - Why not PYO or swap for use raspberries and blackberries instead?!
  • fresh mint to serve – optional


  • Whip the cream in a large bowl until nice and thick. Stir in the icing sugar, if used.
  • Chop/crush into small chucks the meringues and add to the bowl of cream stirring gently.
  • Wash, quarter and hull a large punnet of fresh strawberries.
  • Stir together until combined and serve in bowls or glasses topped with a fresh strawberry and a sprig of mint. You could stand slices of strawberries on the inside of the glass for a tempting presentation! (See photo).
