Pavlova is one of those foods I just can't resist - I don't have a naturally sweet tooth for most foods, but pavlova is the exception! My daughter had just celebrated a birthday so she had nearly three quarters of a large pavlova left over. We thought the lemon and passionfruit flavours would go really well with it. Even better, she had the last of her own fresh passionfruit in the fruit bowl, so we were able to make a base of the fresh fruit and pile the pavlova on top. We then spooned a little whipped cream on top and, last of all, added a generous amount of sauce. It looked almost too nice to eat.
I like the idea that, as always, Barker's have used all natural products to create this sauce. It was interesting to find that the fresh passionfruit underneath the pavlova tasted almost exactly the same as the fruit content in the sauce on top. The lemon was not quite so prominent, but it did help to ensure that the product was not too sweet - the acidity of the lemon helped by cutting through the richness of the pavlova and meant that the sauce was well balanced. We all enjoyed it to the extent that the children asked for seconds!
There was still a lot of sauce left, so we tried it with plain ice-cream next day. Because it has quite a strong flavour, the ice-cream needs to be plain vanilla so that the lemon and passionfruit can both be tasted. Ice-cream is a great item to have in the freezer as it goes with so many different toppings. To add interest, the children added some figs to each plate - figs have quite a mild flavour so they did not overwhelm the main flavours, but they made the dessert a little healthier!
We both thought the price was very reasonable - we used it for twelve desserts and there was still some left, and that is useful to know when you are catering for a group of people. We also thought that, despite the children liking it so much that they came back for seconds, it has a certain sophisticated taste to it that would appeal to older people. When products are as versatile as this, I am much more likely to buy them. My daughter agreed with me. She had thought it would be too sharp and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was sweet enough for her palate too.
