Six for lunch on christmas day.
Two veggies,
One coeliac,
Three normal diets.
I have lots of duck eggs and soft fruit,so thought meringue/eton mess thing for pud.
I cannot remember the last time I made meringues.

Delia's recipe works for me...

Whisk egg whites until very stiff. Use Kenwood chef for this !

add 2oz caster sugar per egg white, add in about 3-4 batches and whisk well inbetween, to a shiny meringue. I have used vanilla sugar, golden caster, ordinary caster and they all work

Heat oven to 180, put in oven and immediatly turn down to 100 and cook for 3 hours and then leave overnight without opening door....

I normally make pavlova rather than individual ones and this is just right - cripsy and chewy in the middle. Yummmmm

I am convinced that one of the reasons Mr RJ stays married to me,is because I make great puddings....

I prefer meringues with half icing (confectioner's) sugar and half castor. I still have some meringues left from the Great Glut of Eggs back awhile.

A rayburn. The bottom oven of ours is great. I put them in and several days later I take them out and they're ready.

Forgot to add that soft brown sugar is a great in them instead of caster sugar.
