FAQ and Cooking Tips

How do you whip egg whites without sugar?

To whip egg whites without sugar, start with room-temperature eggs, beat them until foamy, and continue whisking until stiff peaks form, ensuring your bowl and beaters are clean and free from any grease. Adding a little acid, like cream of tartar or lemon juice, can help stabilize the egg whites.

How to store homemade meringue cookies

You can store homemade meringue cookies in an airtight container at room temperature, away from any moisture, for up to a week for best quality. To prevent sticking, you can layer them between sheets of parchment paper.

Can you buy sugar free meringues?

Yes, you can buy sugar-free meringues. They are often sweetened with sugar substitutes like erythritol, stevia, or artificial sweeteners, making them suitable for those looking to reduce sugar intake. These can typically be found in health food stores, specialty bakeries, or online. But why not try making them like what I’m showing in this recipe? It’s not that complicated!
