fruit salad, meringue


The other day, I made an apricot tart that left me with lots of egg whites and a few tinned apricots. I hate wasting food, so decided to do something with them. With stewed blackberries and a fruit salad in the fridge, which were at risk of being thrown out if they weren't eaten soon, I had my answer. Fruit salad meringue.

While kids can make this healthy dessert, they can learn about the value of recycling at the same time. It is quick and easy to whip up, and at the end of it, they have something tasty to eat.

I had enough to make two meringues, but you can make adjustments depending on how many leftovers you have.
