Floating Islands with Ricotta Cream and Poached Apricots
Make these Floating Islands with Ricotta Cream and Poached Apricots for a tasty dessert. When poached gently in milk, meringue takes on a sumptuous taste and a smooth, creamy texture that belies its virtual lack of fat. Scoop and shape into small ovals using a pair of dessert spoons. Keep the milk just below a bare simmer—it should give off steam but maintain a still surface.
