Wild Blueberry-Star Anise Eton Mess with Tangerine Curd

Wild Blueberry-Star Anise Eton Mess with Tangerine Curd | Kelly Neil

We hand-picked Nova Scotia wild blueberries and I made Eton mess for the first time 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.

HOW TO MAKE WILD BLUEBERRY-STAR ANISE ETON MESS WITH TANGERINE CURD

  1. SIMMER 1 cup of blueberries with 3 tbsp of sugar and 2 star anise pods until thick - about 15 minutes.
  2. MAKE my 6-Minute Microwave Lemon Curd but substitute 3 tangerines for the lemons.
  3. WHISK a small batch of unsweetened whipped cream.
  4. OPEN a package of pre-made meringues.
  5. CRUMBLE a meringue, dollop on some whipped cream, topped with blueberries and curd.
