Long title, I know. I still had lemongrass left from making the melon lemongrass boba drink, so I needed to find a way to use it. I really liked the flavor of the infused milk, so I decided to infuse cream this time. I also had a pack of strawberries that would go nicely with the lemongrass. I could have chopped it up and used it as a topping, but I decided to make a strawberry curd.
Well, I’m glad I did. The strawberry curd was deeeelicious. I am going to put it on toast tomorrow for breakfast! It’d also be great on cake, cupcakes, cookies, etc. etc. etc. The recipe is right here.
These are the two toppings I chose for the airy crispy tender pavlova. Pavlova is a meringue type dessert that you can either make into one large “cake” shape, or into minis, like so. The cream and curd paired perfectly together, and the pavlova was great as a base! It all came together into a delicious, elegant dessert.
