( MAKES 6 )

Who can go past large, individual meringues laden with homemade lemon curd and fresh kiwifruit? I used green kiwifruit here for a slightly sour complement to the sweet curd and manuka honey. Find the recipe for lemon curd here.
- Set oven to 150C. Line an oven tray with baking paper and draw 6 x 8cm circles.
- Beat the egg whites, sugar, cornflour, vinegar and boiling water on high for 5 minutes, then turn down and continue to beat for 10 more minutes. Fold coconut through, reserving a tablespoon for decoration.
- Spoon the mixture evenly into the centre of each circle, without spreading it out to the edges. It will spread a little as it cooks. Place in the oven for 35 minutes, then turn the oven off and leave the meringues to cool, preferably overnight.
- To serve, plate the meringues, top with lemon curd, cream, kiwifruit and a little coconut. Drizzle some honey over to finish.
