Sugar Free Meringues

When I use the term sugar free on my blog I mean sucrose free. I have had a lot of negative feedback about stating something is sugar free when I use an alternative ‘sugar’. The fact is, I am sucrose intolerant, and hence sugar in the form we are all used to it, is a no-no for me. I use alternatives, mainly fructose, in all of my recipes. And 30 years of doing so has not resulted in any adverse effects. If you are here reading this post, please keep this in mind when you comment on this recipe for sugar free meringues.

Dave and I used to go for a walk along the beach every night and then stop and have a drink at one of the local establishments facing the sea, before heading back home. But as we don’t seem to have that much time at the moment, we only go for walks on the odd occasion. However, when we are overseas this is a nightly ritual. We will sit in a piazza at a table with the locals and enjoy a drink and a few snacks, before heading back to cook dinner where ever we are staying. The other day the Western Cape recorded its highest ever temperature. Dave came home to fetch me and we drove to the beach and had a long swim. Once we had cooled down we walked to have a drink at a local restaurant. The outside tables are very popular and we were lucky enough to get one as we arrived. A couple were just leaving and so we could sit down and look out over the sea. Not 2 minutes after we arrived, an older couple arrived. They wanted to sit down and have a drink and so we invited them to share our table. They were so surprised by this offer. We got to talking, and the gentleman commented how sweet we were to make the offer. To me, it was just something that should be the norm. A drink shared with strangers can be really quite interesting. Something else sweet that made my day were these sugar free meringues. I was given a jar of Canderel spoon for spoon and as I had not paid for it I decided to experiment with making meringues. There are always leftover egg whites in my freezer as I make a lot of ice cream and so using the egg whites in experiments is never a problem. And I was really pleased with how these turned out. I wanted to make split colour meringues but did not want to pay the exorbitant price for a special piping bag. Instead I carefully placed the white meringue into half of the bag, and the pink into the other half and the result was perfect.

  3. I love your delicate sugar free meringues. They are so delicate and pretty with your white/pink combination. Very clever Tandy. Now I have to google “Canderel spoon for spoon”. It was sweet of you to offer to share your table but I agree, some of the best conversations can be with total strangers in public places 🙂

  4. I’m with you, a shared drink with strangers is a great thing to do. I always find it amazing how many times you will find they know someone who knows someone who you know!! I have no idea what the ‘spoon for spoon’ is but will google it. These meringues are just darling Tandy x
