Any spare egg whites? Pop them in the freezer….

If you find yourself with any spare egg whites and don’t know what to do with them, pop them into a plastic bag and put them in the freezer until you’re ready to use them (make sure there is no egg yolk in them and no holes in the bag!).  They will make great meringues when you want them and these are really easy.

Defrost your egg whites, whisk until firm, add 50g caster sugar to each egg white used and whisk until shiny, thick and creamy – if you turn the bowl upside down it shouldn’t fall out. With a large spoon, spoon large peaks onto a lined baking tray and bake in a cool oven – meringue110C or gas mark 1/4 for an hour and leave to cool. Once cooled drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Marshmallowy in the middle they are delicious with fresh fruit and maybe a dollop or two of cream.
