ive been wanting to make my own macarons forever and i finally did it. i did tons of research, read a million articles and watched a million youtube videos. they are notoriously hard to make, requires very precise measurement, mix method, number of folds, speed, temperature, humidity, and 10 million other things. I was up for the challenge. I didn’t have any equipment such as thermometer, food scale, and piping bags.
i used the french method which is the harder method that really doesnt give u any room for errors. the italian meringue is a step more than the french method. it allows room for errors but requires a thermometer.
now, after all these learning and research i can easily tell which method a macaron made with.
macarons made with the italian meringue method are not as airy or melt-in-the-mouth as macarons made with the French Meringue.
im happy that i got the feet which is pretty hard to do. they def taste good, but the texture def needs to be improved. i ordered a thermometer and food scale and will try again soon!
