How to make it

  1. BEAT the egg whites and salt until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the sugar beating well between each addition until dissolved. Fold through the cocoa, cinnamon and vinegar.
  2. SPOON or pipe meringue into 12cm diameter nests on paper lined baking trays. Bake in a very slow oven 120ºC for 1½ hours or until crisp and dry. Allow to cool in the oven with door ajar. Store in an airtight container until required.
