Pomelo Pie Recipe

This recipe is based on a Citrus Tart.

We made a sweet pastry for the base and a lovely gooey curd for the middle and of course the meringue that everyone loves.  This is one of Roys favourite things he love any dessert with lemon or lime in it.  The fact that he loves pomelo  is just strange.  Bitter.  So bitter.

Ok to the recipe we also used a rectangle container 12x30cm roughly

Sweet Pastry:

  • 100g butter
  • 50g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 180g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

blend butter and sugar, add egg.  Sift flour and baking powder together and add to mix.  Once combined, mold in to tin. rest for 15min bake for 15minutes or till slightly golden in a preheated 180’c oven.

The Curd:

  • juice 2 pomelo’s and zest one – should be about 100mls
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1  cup of sugar
  • 60g butter

Whisk egg yolks and add sugar until well combined. not frothy.  Pour into a heavy based saucepan and add butter, juice and zest stirring continuously.  Simmer at a medium heat for about 5 minutes.  Are soon as bubbles appear, remove from heat.  Keep stirring for another few minutes once off the heat.  Transfer into pastry case.

Meringue:

  • 4 egg whites, at room temperature
  • Pinch salt
  • 220g (1 cup) caster sugar
Place the egg whites in a large clean, dry bowl. Use an electric beater to whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar and whisk until the sugar dissolves. Continue beating for 2 minutes or until the mixture is thick, glossy, all the sugar dissolves and a long trailing peak forms.  Bake in a preheated oven of 180’c for about 15min to brown the top of the tart.
