In a clean and dry medium mixing bowl, place egg whites and salt. With clean and dry hand mixer beaters, whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. It is very important that all tools that touch the egg whites are clean and dry. If there is any trace of oil or water on your bowl or mixer paddle attachments, the egg whites won’t whip properly.
To make a homemade thick cranberry sauce (perfect as jam or filling for cakes), combine 6 oz. fresh or frozen cranberries, 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of white sugar in small saucepan. Cook until the cranberries pop. Simmer until the mixture is thick. Cool completely. It's best to make this sauce at least a day ahead. Use cold to decorate the Pavlova cake.
