Cooking Time: 1 hour 25 minutes
- Preheat oven to 120°C.
- Place egg whites and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk on low speed for 2-3 minutes until the whites become frothy. Increase the speed to medium-high and continue to whisk until soft peaks form.
- Add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time until incorporated. Continue to whisk until thick and glossy and all the sugar has dissolved. To test rub some meringue between your finger tips, it should be completely smooth.
- Using dessert spoons, drop heaped spoonful’s onto baking paper lined oven trays. Transfer to the oven and bake for 1 ¼ hours until crisp and the meringues lift easily from the baking paper. Turn off the oven and leave to cool inside with the door slightly ajar.
