Method

 
Preheat the oven to 100 ºC (200 ºF). Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Beat the egg whites and salt together until soft peaks are formed. Add the castor sugar by the spoonful while beating continuously. Beat until glossy. Place the meringue in a piping bag and pipe meringue nests onto the waxed paper. Bake for about 2 hours or until the nests are completely dry. Process the kiwi fruit in a food processor. Place in a saucepan with the water, sugar and lemon juice and heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture just comes to the boil. Stir continuously. Remove from the heat and cool completely at room temperature. Pour into a freezer container and freeze until nearly set. Beat the egg whites until they hold soft peaks and add the castor sugar by the spoonful while beating continuously. Fold into the half-frozen kiwi fruit mixture. Freeze once more, stirring after half an hour. Freeze completely. Serve with the meringue nests. Serves 4.
