Ingredients
  • 450g dark skinned plums, halved and stoned
  • 50g sugar
  • 25g redcurrant jelly
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 125g Asda lighter mascarpone
  • 150ml double cream
  • 2 meringue nests
Method
  • Put the plums in a saucepan with the sugar, redcurrant and 2 tbsp water. Cover and cook over a low heat for 10 – 15 minutes until really soft, stirring occasionally.

  • Tip into a bowl and leave until completely cold, then chill. Add the mascarpone and mash with a fork to make a rough purée.

  • In another bowl whip the cream until it just holds its shape. Break the meringues into small pieces but don’t crush them.

  • Fold the cream and meringue into the plum mixture. Divide between 4 glasses and chill.
