Makes 1 large pavlova
What you’ll need:
4 egg whites, at room temperature
10ml lemon juice
Pinch of salt
310ml caster sugar
60ml icing sugar
300ml cream, whipped to form stiff peaks
410g Rhodes Fruit Cocktail in Syrup, drained
115g Rhodes Granadilla Pulp
2 Flake chocolates, broken into large chunks
Preheat the oven to 120°C and grease a large oven dish. Sprinkle with extra cornflour. Mix the egg whites, lemon juice and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk until stiff peaks form. Add the caster sugar one spoon at a time and whisk until stiff and shiny. Sift the icing sugar and cornflour and fold into the meringue. Spoon the meringue into the prepared oven dish and bake for about one hour. Allow to cool. Cover the meringue with whipped cream and spoon the Rhodes Fruit Cocktail and Granadilla Pulp over the cream. Top with chocolate and serve.
Use shop-bought meringue if you don’t want to make your own.
If you make the meringue a day or two in advance, store in an airtight container.
Use any Rhodes canned fruit in place of the Fruit Cocktail.
Rhodes keeps abreast of new food trends – and right now fresh red figs are more popular than green figs. So, it gives Rhodes great pleasure to launch their Red Fig Fruit Jam in a convenient glass jar.
Rhodes takes what they do seriously but they also have time for some fun. This is why they are proud to launch the exciting new 400 g Rhodes Very Cherry™ in cherry-flavoured light syrup. Rhodes Very Cherry™ is a first in South Africa – but internationally this is already a well-known product line.
Rhodes Two Fruits™ is a new mouth-watering canned fruit treat that is both economical and delicious. Made from choice grade diced peaches and pears in a syrup, Rhodes Two Fruits™ in a can is a convenient way to enjoy seasonal fruit, preservative free, all year round.
At Rhodes, they take pride in their innovative spirit and jam-making skills. At the same time, they also realise the importance of keeping and enhancing traditonal South African favourites. This is why Rhodes is so excited to launch their new 450 g Rhodes Chunky Apricot Jam.
