In an electric mixer, whisk the whites until they begin to foam, then gradually add the syrup in a slow, steady stream. Continue to whisk until the meringue begins to cool and becomes thick, firm and glossy. Line a tray with a silicone baking mat and spread the meringue evenly out to a thickness of 1cm. Dehydrate at 55°C for 8 hours
