To make the meringue, preheat the oven to 120C/Gas ½; beat the egg whites until stiff; add the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time and beat well after each addition; beat in the cornflour and vinegar just before you add the last few tablespoons of sugar; spoon the meringue into a plastic bag; cut one corner and pipe small mounds of meringue on a lined baking tray; bake in the pre-heated oven for 2 hours; switch off the oven and leave the meringues to cool inside
