RASPBERRY COULIS:

Bring the raspberries and sugar to the boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes until it thickens slightly.

Strain and press through a sieve or mouli.

MERINGUE:

Whip egg whites with sugar to very soft peaks. Whip cream to stiff peaks (but not butter).

Fold egg whites mixture, whipped cream, nuts, and mixed peel together.

Pour into greaseproof paper lined loaf tin. Cover with greaseproof and freeze overnight or until required.

Serve with raspberry coulis.

Buon Appetitio!
