Our son was born in Australia and as a child, his birthdays were celebrated with Pavlova, that light meringue with fruit toppings popular with the Aussies. Here’s a version with pomegranates and pomegranate molasses instead of the traditional Australian passion fruit. Pair with Sparkling Rosé Ice Wine or Sparkling Traminette.
Ingredients
  • 4 ozs egg whites (or about one cup)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp white vinegar (or pomegranate vinegar)
  • 1 tsp cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 2 cups pomegranate molasses
  • 1 pomegranate, deseeded
  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream or whole cream
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped toasted walnuts
Directions

Preheat the oven to 250ºF.

Beat the egg whites until stiff.  Gradually add the sugar (roughly one-two tablespoons as a time) and continue beating until all the sugar has been mixed into the egg whites and the mixture is relatively stiff.  Add the cornstarch, vanilla, and vinegar and beat briefly (less than half of a minute).

Place a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie tray.  If you like, draw one large 10-12" circle or 8-10 circles roughly 3-4" in diameter.  Using a large spoon, put the meringue mixture onto the circles, making a dip in the center to hold the fruit. 

Bake for one hour for large meringue and 45 minutes for smaller ones.  Remove from the oven and permit the meringues to cool. 

When ready to serve, drizzle the pomegranate molasses on the meringue and then scatter the pomegranate ails (seeds) on top.  Top with whipped or ice cream if you like and sprinkle with toasted walnuts.
