Swiss Meringue Recipe

100 grams of egg whites
200 grams of refined sugar
Lemon drops and zest to taste

Preparation mode:
First, place the egg whites and sugar in a pan over low heat until the sugar dissolves or until it reaches a temperature of 72º degrees. To know the correct temperature, you will need a food thermometer.

If you don’t have a thermometer, the point will be when you don’t see any more sugar.

However, be very careful not to cook the egg whites. If you don’t have a thermometer, one way to see the point is when you rub your fingers together and there’s no trace of sugar.

When you reach the point, take this syrup to an electric mixer, add the zest and lemon drops and beat at maximum speed until cool. Use the globe-type beater to beat the Swiss meringue.

You can use it for desserts, like lemon tart, or you can use it to make cakes. This is that meringue that accepts that you use the blowtorch to brown it.
