Strawberry & Mint Meringues
STRAWBERRY AND MINT MERINGUES
4 egg whites
240 grams of caster sugar
3 tablespoons of Strawberry and mint white wine vinegar
Preheat the oven to fan 100 c, conventional 110 c, gas mark 1/4. Line 2 baking sheets with Bake-o-Glide or parchment paper.
Tip the egg whites into a clean mixing bowl and beat on a medium speed
until the mixture stands up in stiff peaks when the blades are lifted.
Turn the speed up and start to add the caster sugar, a dessertspoonful at a time. Add the sugar slowly to prevent the meringue weeping later, but don’t over beat. Add the strawberry and mint white wine vinegar.
I use a dessertspoon to scoop up the meringue and using another spoon ease it on to the baking sheet, or you can just drop them in rough rounds.
Bake for 1 – 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 hours in the oven until the meringues sound crisp. Leave to cool.
I like to sandwich these together with Marscapone cheese!
