Meringue Making

As part of our food technology lessons, year 6 have been learning how to make meringue. We first of all looked at the type of eggs we can buy from the supermarket (the difference between caged, battery farm and free range) and then we had a go at making our own meringues. We learned how to properly separate an egg into the white and the yolk, whisk the white to stiff peaks, folding in the icing sugar and then spooning the mixture onto a baking tray. Once they had cooked for 90 minutes and had cooled, we then made some chantilly cream. For this, we mixed together double cream, vanilla and icing sugar. We then got the chance to eat our creations with fresh strawberries or jam.
