I don't even know what "bleeding egg whites" are!! LOL

I cooked some egg whites today. Do you mean when you scramble them? If so, you need to put them on a very low temp and scramble slowly. Let me know if I'm not on the right track!

Hi Curly and welcome. My mother always had a problem with the meringue on her lemon pie bleeding or weeping. She found a cookbook that has a recipe in it that says it ends the problem. She tried a pie last week and it was one of her best. I know it has cornstarch in it. I will try to get the recipe for you in a few days....she's out of town.

Isn't the freshness of the egg, whites, (Albumen) critical? Also when "whipping" it must be done in a immaculately clean (No Trace of Fat) copper, or stainless steel bowl only? Also, could it be lacking cream of tartar? Welcome curly! Atomic Jed!

Got to go with AJ on this one...sounds like you forgot to add cream of tartar.

Cream of Tartar is also the stabalizing ingredient in whipped cream - right?

:D thanks for the imput i tried another one yesterday thanks daisy i think maybe it might of been the sugar i went and bought a good sugar and i tested it like you said i knew about the clean bowl i use a glass bowl and before i use it i put real hot water in it and let it dry on it's own. my mom said maybe the egg whites should be cold or should they be room temp. thanks again it was much better this time not perfect but the next one i will cool in the oven and see if that helps thanks :D
