Wild Blueberry-Star Anise Eton Mess with Tangerine Curd

We hand-picked Nova Scotia wild blueberries last week.

They're so tiny. So juicy. So flavourful.

Sorry highbush beauties.

I adore you but my heart belongs to these exquisite little darlings.

I simmered 1 cup of wild blueberries with 3 tbsp. of sugar and 2 star anise pods until thick - about 15 minutes. I made my 6-Minute Microwave Lemon Curd but substituted 3 tangerines for the lemons. I whisked a small batch of unsweetened whipped cream. I opened a package of pre-made meringues. I crumbled a meringue, mixed the pieces with some whipped cream, then topped with dollops of blueberries and curd.

Divine.
