  • Summary

    Hibiscus tea has a gorgeous magenta hue and sweet-tart cranberry flavor. This pavlova uses the tea two ways: finely ground to infuse and tint light-as-air meringues and also brewed, reduced, and combined with lemon curd to create a rich whipped cream topping. The result is a dessert that's both stunning and delicious.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup plus 2 teaspoons superfine sugar, divided
    • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
    • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 6 tablespoons dried hibiscus flowers (available at natural food stores, Latin or Middle Eastern markets, or online) or 7 hibiscus tea bags
    • 3 large egg whites, room temperature
    • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar or 3/4 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons dried hibiscus flowers or 2 hibiscus tea bags
    • 1/4 cup superfine sugar
    • 1 cup cold heavy cream
    • 3 tablespoons homemade or store-bought lemon curd
    • 2 tablespoons sour cream
    • Pinch of fine sea salt
