					Grapefruit meringue pie

2 eggs
1 egg yolk
½ cup caster sugar
½ cup grapefruit juice
60g butter
1 tbs flaked almonds

Meringue
3 egg whites
¾ cup caster sugar

1 Combine eggs, egg yolk, caster sugar, juice and butter in a small heatproof bowl.
Whisk constantly over a saucepan of simmering water (making sure water doesn’t
touch the base of the bowl) until mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
Remove for heat and place the bowl in a larger bowl of ice, whisking to stop the
cooking process.
2 Beat egg whites in a bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually
add sugar, beating until sugar dissolves and meringue is thick and glossy.
3 Spoon cooled grapefruit curd into chilled martini glasses. Pipe or spoon meringue
over curd and sprinkle with almonds. Use a kitchen blow torch to brown the tops.
