BRING the milk to a boil in a heavy bottomed pan. Keep stirring on low heat till reduced to 400 ml. Add sugar and continue to stir for 10 more minutes. Keep aside to cool. To prepare the floating islands (the meringue): Combine the lemon juice, thickened milk and egg yolks. Mix well. Chill. In a small bowl beat the egg whites until they stand in soft peaks. Add the sugar and beat until stiff, but not dry. In the meanwhile in a large saucepan bring six cups water to a boil. Lower the heat so that the water simmers. Drop the eggwhite mixture into the water, two spoonfuls at a time. Simmer for five minutes. Make four meringues in this manner. To assemble, pour the chilled milk mixture into four dessert bowls. Top with a meringue. Garnish with desiccated coconut or pistachio slices and a cherry. Serve chilled. NOTES : This delicious light dessert really looks as if it were a floating island.
