Meringue

MERINGUE

Norman & Janet Van Aken © 2016

Meringue is not very hard to make but you will need a ‘candy thermometer’ to accurately measure the heat of the syrup you will be making first. A blowtorch is handy too…

Makes enough for 1) 9-inch pie of your choosing.

For the Meringue

1 Cup white sugar

4 large egg whites

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

In a saucepan, combine the sugar and 1/4 cup of water and bring to a boil.   Cook over moderate heat until the syrup reaches 243 degrees on a candy thermometer.
