What is the secret to Pavlova?

The sugar must be completely dissolved into the egg whites for a successful Pavlova. If it feels grainy (between your fingers), keep beating until it’s smooth.

How do you make a Pavlova with berries?

Preheat oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw a 10-inch circle on the parchment.

In a large bowl, combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat at medium-high speed until foamy. Gradually beat in the sugar, a tablespoon at a time. Continue beating until stiff peaks form. Fold in the vinegar and almond extract.

In a small bowl, combine cocoa and cornstarch. Mix well and gently fold into the egg white mixture. Spoon this mixture onto the circle drawn on parchment paper. Bake, and then turn oven off and let meringue cool completely in the oven.

How far in advance can I assemble Pavlova?

You can make a Pavlova up to three days in advance. Store by loosely wrapping in a plastic bag (in a low-humidity area), then assemble just before you serve it.

Once they are assembled, serve the meringues within four hours.

How long do you leave a Pavlova in the oven to cool?

Turn the oven off and leave the Pavlova to cool inside the oven for five to six hours or overnight, to avoid cracks. At this point, you can store the cooled meringue shells in an airtight container for several days.

This will be a good recipe for 4th of July and summer entertaining.
