Introduction
 A healthy meal the whole family will enjoy.

Ingredients
  • 3 Large free range egg whites, at room temperature
  • 150g Caster sugar
Method
  • Step 1 Preheat your oven to 120ºC. Line two baking trays with baking paper (meringue can stick to greaseproof paper and foil).
  • Step 2 Put the egg whites into a large clean glass or metal mixing bowl.
  • Step 3 Using a hand blender with the whisk attachment, beat them on low speed until the mixture resembles a fluffy cloud and stands up in stiff peaks when the whisk is lifted.
  • Step 4 Continue whisking using the high speed and start to add the caster sugar, a bit at a time.
  • Step 5 Continue beating for 3-4 seconds between each addition of the caster sugar.
  • Step 6 Be careful not to over beat the mixture. The mixture should be thick and glossy.
  • Step 7 Using two dessertspoons, scoop 16 evenly sized ball shaped meringues onto the baking paper, leaving plenty of space between them.
  • Step 8 Bake for 1-1 1/2; hours until the meringues are pale, golden-brown, crisp and lift away easily from the baking paper.
  • Step 9 Turn the oven off then open the oven door slightly and leave the meringues to cool inside the oven.
