Heat the milk until it is almost boiling. Add the sago, 2ml salt and the spices.

Reduce the heat and simmer over a low heat for 10 minutes or until the sago has become transparent. Stir often.

Add 125ml of the sugar and the margarine and stir well.

Remove from the heat and leave the mixture to cool slightly. Stir in the egg yolks until well combined. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased baking dish. Spoon apricot jam over the mixture.

Whisk the egg whites until they are stiff. Beat the remaining 125ml sugar into the egg whites one spoonful at a time. Spread the meringue over the sago mixture and bake in a preheated oven for 40 minutes or until it has set and the meringue is light brown in colour.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
