    tigerduck's Note:

    I loooooooooooove pavlovas. It's not a well known pudding in Switzerland and I've tried pavlova in England for the first time. I asked for the recipe and I used it a couple of times with great success in Switzerland. However, since I came across the apricot and pistachio pavlova recipe posted here, I always use this recipe. I like the addition of the pistachios, and the green nuts look great together with the apricots. But it's not only the pistachios which make this recipe special, but also the apricot purée served with the pavlova. Fill it in a little jug and ask your guests to help themselves! This is also lovely with strawberries instead of the apricots and actually when I did this for the first time, I used strawberries and was asked for the recipe :) You may substitute the vanilla extract with vanilla sugar and add it with the sugar (that's what I usually do). You will have to add 2tsp of water to the cornflour in that case. Preparation time is estimated.

      In a small bowl, blend the cornflour, vanilla extract and vinegar to a smooth paste.
