Citrus Meringue

Fruit Bowl Ingredients
1 grapefruit
2 oranges
2 clementines
1 lime (or use 1/2 the lime and save the other 1/2 for topping)
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons sugar

Topping Ingredients
1/2 lime
2 tablespoons powered sugar
1 egg white


Directions
Peel and remove pith (white edges) of the citrus fruit for the fruit bowls. Cut the fruit into segments and place in a large bowl. Add sugar and ginger and mix well to coat segments. Chill for one to two hours. Divide equally in four oven safe dessert bowls.

Boil a pan of water. Zest and juice the half lime. Place lime zest, one teaspoon of the lime juice, egg white and powered sugar in a heatproof bowl. Set the heatproof bowl over the pan of boiling water. Beat the egg white mixture until it reaches meringue consistency (forms soft peaks when mixer is lifted up from the mixture.)

Preheat oven on Broiler setting. Top each fruit bowl with meringue. Place on top rack of over an broil for 3 - 5 minutes. Serve.

Makes four servings.
