- Beat until thick.
- Add egg and egg yolks.
- Gradually add sugar and salt.
- Stir into grape juice mixture.

- Add gelatin and butter.
- Pour into baked pastry shell.
- Top with meringue made from 2 egg whites, 3 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar.
- Do not add flavoring, as I believe that is what makes meringue fall and weep.
- I like to lightly brown the meringue.
