    To make the meringues, whisk egg whites and salt until stiff peaks have formed.

    Add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, beating continuously until all sugar is dissolved and meringue is glossy and thick.

    Place meringues on a tray lined with baking paper and bake for 1 hour 20 minutes.

  • 5.

    Allow to cool in the oven.
