Add the pinch of salt and start mixing.

Once the whites start foaming, begin adding sugar, a spoon at a time, constantly mixing.

Add the last portion of sugar. Squeeze half the lemon and pour the juice into the egg-white mixture. Then, mix at full speed.

Stop when the foam (meringue) is stiff, thick, and glossy, and the sugar is completely dissolved. When you turn the bowl upside down, the meringue should stay in place.

Using the back of the spoon, shape the edges and create shallow depressions in the centre to form nests for filling later.

Once the meringues are shaped on the baking paper, place them in the preheated oven and reduce the temperature to 100°C.

Bake for 40 minutes.

After this time, reduce the heat to 70°C and continue baking for a further 20 minutes.
