    Need more information. What type of stick blender? I have an older
    (ca. 1998) Cuisinart cordless immersion blender that might be good for
    scrambling eggs, but would not rise to whipping egg whites. Do you not
    have a hand or stand mixer (or was this question answered when you
    stated: "I only have a regular stick blender")? Even an old rotary
    beater, IMHO, wouldn't make the *stiff* peaks you're likely looking
    for. I don't know how anyone achieved this prior to the invention of
    the electric mixer, although a quick look seems to argue that
    meringues, say, have been around since the 16th century.

    With a whisk. It's not that hard. A big whisk, in a big bowl.

    I was first taught to do it with a table fork :-)

    The only thing I would add is *a copper bowl*. The role of the
    copper is known and it is not regarded as harmful.
