Apart from their traditional use, Lori's
Meringue's make a great dessert on their
own, and are a fantastic and interesting
hostess gift. Packaged in attractive tills,
Lori's Meringue Mushrooms look as much
like button mushrooms from a supermarket
shelf as do the real thing.
Rapidly growing in popularity, Lori's Salt
Caramel Syrup drew attention at the 2013
NASFT Fancy Food Show in San Francisco in
January, and has recently been launched
nationally with Cost Plus World Markets. The
syrup, all natural, fat free and made without
artificial preservatives, has a rich flavor of
vanilla and a hint of maple with the
sweetness brought out by the dash of
salt...just a little goes a long way with this
Mushrooms and acorns made from meringue?!
Meringue, in one form or another, has been being made
since at least the earliest part of the 17th century. The
history of the meringue mushroom can be traced back to
Napoleon I of France. During his reign, actual yule logs
were replaced (largely by imperial decree) with a festive
cake, the Buche de Noel, which was then decorated.
Long popular in Europe, the Buche de Noel has enjoyed
a recent surge of popularity in the United States.
Lori's Meringue Mushrooms and Acorns are made from a
unique recipe that allows the meringue to stay crisp and
delightful, even when put on a decorated cake in the
refrigerator overnight. Talk about a time saver!
