I tried the 'NO FAIL" meringue recipe and it failed miserably... the mix thickened on the stove , i beat the egg whites until they were stiff and even GRADUALLY added the stove top mixture.. as i did the egg white began to become runny.... i dont understand what i am doing wrong i did it 3 times each time slowly adding the stove top mix.... please help!!!!!
I did a short post on making Meringue on my blog about a month ago. I plan on doing a video on it when I get back home in two weeks. One of my fellow readers was also having the problem, so read the comments and see if that helps you. The link is below. If not, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
You can also do an Italian meringue instead of a basic, which is easier to stabilize as long as you are comfortable boiling sugar syrup.
As for a basic meringue: It may be that you are adding your sugar too late in the process. Add your sugar at soft peak stage. Be sure to do it slowly, otherwise it won't dissolve to stabilize, you will over beat your eggs and they will collapse.
