I had a lot of egg white left over this weekend from making custard this week. My options were flavour-less egg white omelette or lovely meringues. No competiton.
I whisked six egg whites together with a pinch of salt until it was almost forming stiff peaks. I added 250g of caster sugar slowly until the mixture was shiny and forming lots of lush stiff peaks. I popped it over my head for good measure. Excellent. Jobs a good ‘un.
