Italian Meringue

You'll need a candy thermometer for this recipe, and it's a bit more of a challenge that the other two types of meringues, Swiss and French, since timing is of the essence, but with practice, it'll get easier. Be careful when pouring melted sugar!

Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons water

Directions

Place the egg whites in the bowl of an electric mixer. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and cook to the soft ball stage, 240 degrees. Begin whipping the egg whites on medium-high speed once the sugar reaches 235 degrees.

Remove the sugar from the heat, reduce the mixer speed, and slowly pour the cooked sugar into the egg whites. Increase the mixer speed and continue to whip until the mixer bowl is cool to the touch.

Italian Shopping Tip

Italian food is about simplicity and letting the ingredients shine. So make sure you get ingredients that are great quality and flavor. Farmers markets and specialty stores will have great produce and products. Just be sure to have some great olive oil.

Italian Cooking Tip

Unlike other highly regarded cuisines, Italian cooking is usually simple to make with many dishes having only 4 to 8 ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.
