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.
