Stages of cooking
Prepare the ingredients. Wash eggs, separate the whites from the yolks. Wash and clean the strawberries from the stalks.
For whipping whites use clean, dry and skimmed dish and beaters. Whites whip with salt at high speed into a stable foam.
Postpone 20 grams from the total amount of sugar. 130 g of sugar put in whites with a tablespoon, continuing to whip, until a smooth, dense, stable mass.
Warm up oven to 100 degrees. Place the meringue on a baking tray laid with parchment. Meringues dry at 100 degrees in the middle of the oven for an hour. Then turn off the oven, leaving the meringue inside until it cools completely.
Postpone a few berries for decoration. Chop strawberries randomly, add the remaining 20 grams of sugar. Cut the vanilla pod with a sharp knife, remove the seeds and add to the strawberries. Vanilla and sugar for berries can be replaced by an appropriate amount of vanilla sugar.
Stir and leave for at least an hour.
Before serving, whip the cream.
Before serving, collect the dessert, laying layers of broken meringue, strawberries along with the sugar syrup and whipped cream. Decorate as desired. Bon appetit!
