Mother's Floating Island - from Nena

I can tell you that this is the most delicious dessert in the world - and it's not too fattening. I remember something about putting the egg white portion on a decorative plate and filling the center with strawberries. Then getting the custard and pouring it over the egg whites, then heating the brown sugar until it is warm and drizzling that all over the egg whites and custard. If you have any questions, contact Mari. (Sorry, that is all I have from Mother's cooking lesson for me)
