5 In a clean mixing bowl, whisk egg whites over low speed until foamy. Add in lemon juice, whisk until small bubbles are formed. Add in sugar gradually, whisk until soft peaks (meringue is shiny with arch shape). (Reminder: Egg whites and equipment used to beat egg whites must be grease-free, water-free and egg yolk-free. It is advisable to clean the egg shells and equipment with dishwasher detergent, then dry with a clean cloth. Use a clean small bowl to separate the egg yolk and egg white, if the egg yolk cracks, don’t use that egg white.)
