Meridian Foods update – 15.00pm Thursday 26th March.

We are currently experiencing exceptionally high demand for our products and because of this have had to take the extremely tough decision to temporarily close our store while we catch up with orders in our system. Any orders placed before 3pm on Thursday 26th March will still be delivered as soon as possible but please bear with us during this time.

We plan to open again soon and will keep you updated here and on our social media pages.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused and please stay safe and stay at home where possible.

Bakewell Meringues

Posted by Meridian on


  • 8 Amaretti biscuits

For the Compote:

  • 250g cherries, stoned (fresh or frozen)
  • 2tsp lemon juice
  • 30g sugar

For the meringue:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 2tbsp Meridian Smooth Almond Butter


  1. Heat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/ Gas 3. Crush the amaretti biscuits and tip into the bottom of 4 ramekins or ovenproof bowls. To make the compote, heat the cherries, lemon juice and sugar, bring to a simmer and cook for 10mins until the cherries soften and the sauce becomes syrupy. Set aside to cool.
  1. In a clean bowl whisk the egg whites to a soft peak, add half the sugar and continue to whisk till shiney. Add the remaining sugar bit by bit whilst whisking. In a separate bowl stir a spoonful of meringue into the almond butter to loosen it then tip it back into the meringue bowl and fold in gently to create a ripple effect.
  1. Divide the compote between the ramekins then pipe or spoon the meringue on top. Bake for 30mins until the meringue is puffed up and golden.
