  • 2 ounces gelatine
  • 2 1/2 cups water

Soak the gelatine in 1 cup of water. Place the remaining 1 1/2 cups of water, sugar and cream of tartar in a saucepan. Heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the soaked gelatine and boil steadily for 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Beat the egg white stiffly.
