Lemon Meringue Tart
Because our garden have a lovely lemon tree, I have decided to share this delicious and easy lemon meringue tart with you. Most of us are very familiar with lemon meringue tart, I grew up with it. My mom used to make it for us quite a lot. At the moment it is lovely to squeeze out the lemon juice from the fresh lemons from the tree, as well as using the lovely zest of the lemon. If you don't have the zester tool, you can for sure grate the lemon's rind on the smooth side of the grater. Don't use the rough side, the zest pieces are too big, the smaller zest are also easier when you take a bite. I must say the fresh lemons and zest makes a huge difference to the bottles of lemon juice from the supermarkets. Lemon meringue tart can be made in small individual ones, or one large one. I would recommend this one for a medium seize tart. If you are a coffee shop owner, you will probably need to double the recipe for a larger lemon meringue tart. Then you make the meringue part, it is important to add the sugar little bit by little bit. Sometimes one are in a hurry and you do it quicker. You will see the sugar will make crystals and will not disappear. If you are doing a practical exam you might get penalized for it. You can add the meringue in a lovely piping bag with different kinds of nozzles and pipe little small meringues next to each other all over the meringue if you prefer to make a stunner who will bowl out all your guests. For those with less time, the old fashioned way is also more than fine. If you like this lemon meringue tart, you will love the chocolate tart.
