Homemade Meringue and An Easy Peasy Dessert

I can't remember ever going to my grandmother's house and there isn't a big green tin on her kitchen shelf that's full of meringues. We would get an after lunch treat of ice cream with meringue crumbled over the top. Or a bowl of fresh ripe raspberries with meringue on top. Or just a meringue to go with your afternoon coffee. My sister absolutely loves them, so much that my grandmother brought over a whole tin for Christmas. 
People are often confused when they see I freeze my egg whites when I only need the yolk for a recipe. But egg whites actually freeze really well and once I have a small container full I usually whip up a batch of meringue.
