This dish looks very impressive. I was hoping the taste would live up to the presentation but my husband and I were disappointed as soon as we took a bite. I love fruit and generally love dishes that are simple and highlight the produce. This one, however, became watery upon poaching and felt as though an element was missing. Needed something to absorb all the liquid (or at least some of it)? So many great recipes created by Eating Well - this one just didn't measure up.
Meringue-Topped Strawberries & Rhubarb
From EatingWell: May/June 2008
Poaching brings out the flavorful strawberry and rhubarb juices with minimal effort. An airy meringue on top of the poached fruit is a healthy (and gorgeous) stand-in for a heavier whipped-cream or ice cream topping.

Can't believe I wasted ingredients on this...
It really didn't seem like much of a dessert. The strawberries and rhubarb went well together, but it was much too tart and didn't mesh well with the meringue. I did it in a deep dish instead of ramekins, Maybe it would have seemed nicer in individual sizes.
