Meringues with Mastic - Ashuplados kon almastica.
The Jews of Rhodes make ivory-colored meringues that are so crunchy to the bite, yet soft and chewy with the pine scented ground mastic crystals and vanilla flavored centers.
I like to prepare-ahead a large meringue topped with lightly whipped cream flavored with rose water and fresh berries or whatever fruit is in season just hours before serving.
This show stopping dessert is utterly divine and the ideal Gluten free sweet offering to end a festive meal . See page 239,”Stella’s Sephardic Table”
