Sue's Pavlova

The very worst thing about being told you have celiac disease comes when you look through all the recipes you collected over the years (..and years, and years, and...sigh) and you realise you should have used them and not just locked them away in a file... and now you will never use them.... bugger! Not this one though, this one is now a family classic. Sue is my sister. I have no idea where she found this recipe.

Sue's Pav

3 egg whites
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 tbsp water
1 dstsp water

Put everything in a bowl. Beat the bejeebers out of it - till it forms a meringue. It'll take 15 - 20 minutes and you will have heart failure at the beginning because you will think it is NOT going to work.
It does.
Pile it onto a baking tray lined with baking paper (do I really have to write that bit?)
Bake 125c for 1 hour

There is no photo to go with this one yet, but there will be. Eventually. I just want to look industrious while the painters are here. There is a limit to how much respect is available if it looks like you spend all your day watching home renovation shows or the food channel on tv.... there is also a limit to how much food two people can eat, in order that it be photographed for a food blog....
