    You simply give them a quick whisk with a fork and stir into the soup till seperated,are you sure you used only the whites? They shouldn't have floated to the top? And the cornflour,just add a little water to couple tsp and stir in,if you need more,add more,i don't understand why you think the instructions were poor,i've simply reiterated what i've stated in my instructions?  -  13 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    When I say a little water I mean just enough till the cornflour dissolves  -  13 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
