Self-isolation has taught us a lot: about ourselves, the world around us, our ability to cope during difficult situations, and our push to better ourselves.
Many have taken the weeks upon weeks of shacking up in their homes to learn a new skill. That could be in the form of baking, sewing, stitching, a new language or even just a fit, healthy body.
Some have discovered just how handy a slow cooker machine can be.
While most of us would usually use one of these bad boys to whip up a beautiful stew that fills your place with the scents of slowly cooked meat, vegetables and sauce, there are other uses for the machine.
People are discovering that you can create a goddamn pavlova in a slow cooker. If you don't have a slow cooker then you'll need to get one and there are plenty online at places like Amazon.
A recipe has been posted onto the brilliant Facebook page Slow Cooker Recipe & Tips and people have been going wild for it.
You'll need four egg whites, one cup of caster sugar, one teaspoon of vinegar and one tablespoon plus one teaspoon of cornflour. Sounds simple enough.
Once you beat the egg whites until they form solid peaks, you're supposed to fold in the sugar a bit at a time until it properly dissolves, which can take up to 15 minutes.
Folding for that long sounds exhausting and it probably is but, hey, a delicious pavlova awaits at the end of this mission.
When that's done, fold (again, really?) in the cornflour and vinegar and then you're set.
Line your slow cooker with baking paper and lightly grease it before chucking your mix into the shape you want.
Obviously, a nice round piece will be fine; we're not encouraging you make it into a swan because that would look silly. Or would it?
Leave the slow cooker for between one and a half to two hours or until the top is lightly crispy.
You'll need to let it cool for a bit and then you can demolish it.
The full recipe can be found here (as well as a second way to do the dance), and photos uploaded to social media show that it looks just as good compared to the regular way of making a pavlova.
So, if you're in isolation and want to get that Aussie spirit pumping through your kitchen, you know what to do.
