A few drops of white wine vinegar

300 ml/0.5 pt whipping cream, whipped

Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Add half the sugar and whisk again until stiff. Using a metal spoon, fold in the remaining sugar, the nuts and wine vinegar. Pipe or spoon the meringue into a round about 20 cm/8 in diameter on a greased and lined baking (cookie) sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 190C/375F/gas mark 5 for 20 minutes until brown and crisp on top. Turn off the oven and leave the door ajar, but leave the meringue in the oven until cool. When ready to serve, spread half the cream in the base of the pavlova, cover with the fruit and pipe stars of cream around the edge.
