Lovely Homemade Lemon Curd. Great to have on toast, add to cake frosting sweet pies... the uses are endless!

Instructions

1. Put 1/2 cup of the blueberries in a small saucepan with 1/4 cup water and 1 tbs sugar. Cook until blueberries break down and sauce thickens. Set aside to cool.

2. Preheat oven to 110 C / 225 F / Gas 1/4

3. Make the meringues: Put egg whites and cream of tartar in a mixer and beat on high with paddle attachment until foamy about 3-4 mins. Slowly add the sugar, 1 tbs at a time on a lower speed or you'll get sugar flying everywhere. When all the sugar is added, beat back on high for about 5-8 mins until it's glossy and thick.

4. Draw three 8 inch rounds on a sheet of parchment paper. Turn the paper over and spread the meringue mixture in the circles.

5. Bake for 1 hour and leave the meringues to cool in the oven or until the meringue is hollow in the centre underneath when you tap them. If a little soft, leave them in a little longer. Cool completely

6. To assemble, whip the heavy cream up to stiff peaks. You can add a little powdered sugar to the cream if you wish, however, the meringues are very sweet so you shouldn't need extra sugar!

7. Put one of the meringues on a plate or cake base. I use a dollop of whipped cream to help my meringue stay in place. Spread some whipped cream on top of the meringue and on top of that spread about 1/3 cup of lemon curd. Drizzle some of the blueberry sauce over and put a few fresh blueberries on top. Repeat process with the other two layers of meringues. When done, place in the fridge until ready to serve.
