Pavlova, the light meringue with fruit toppings is a nice background for the tartness of pomegranate.
  • 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

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
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.  Drop 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.  Add pomegranate molasses and fruit as you like - drizzled over the meringue or poured in the center - scatter pomegranate ails (seeds) and chopped walnuts.  If you prefer, serve with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
