3 tablespoons caster sugar, plus 2/3 cup
2 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
300ml pouring cream, softly whipped
3 tablespoons berry crush/compote
1. Pre-heat oven to 150 degrees. Place the mangoes in a bowl and sprinkle three tablespoons of caster sugar. Now toss gently and set aside.
2. Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add 2/3 cup of caster sugar, beating well. Fold in vinegar and vanilla. Spoon six oval-shaped mounds of meringue onto a paper-lined oven tray. Reduce the temperature to 100 degrees and bake meringues for 50-60 minutes. Turn heat off and leave meringues in oven to cool.
3. Whip the cream until soft peaks form. Just before serving, combine the mangoes, balsamic and six turns of the peppermill. Toss very gently.
4. To serve, sandwich meringues with cream and mangoes and drizzle the juices all over.
