When experimenting with Spooky Meringue Ghosts I found they really need cream of tartar to get the shape I wanted. Cream of tartar, or potassium hydrogen tartrate, is formed using the sediment leftover in wine barrels. It is relatively natural, however, it does undergo a purification process to transform it into the white powder that is sold in stores. Cream of tartar is used in this recipe to stabilise the egg whites.
