    Lise in Indiana's Note:

    While visiting my daughter in Germany, we were given a basketful of fresh red currants, a sweet-tart berry, and tried this recipe on a whim. It was wonderful! The currants kept their fresh flavor and the pie/cake was a perfect base. Back home, I'm going to try the same recipe with fresh strawberries, then fresh blueberries, then fresh raspberries...

      This is very yummy and colorful. I used frozen which I thawed and it added a link pink hue to the meringue. Also didn't have lemon so used zest from pink grapefruit. Mmm mmm good! Thanks

      This was great! The bottom is like a cookie with a meringe topping. The berries are cooked just enough so that they kind of pop in your mouth when you take a bite. The only change I made was I used black currants and blueberries.
