How To Make perfect divinity

  • 1
    Cook sugar,syrup and water to a boiling point stirring, put lid on for 3 minutes to get rid of sugar crystals, boil for 3 minutes
  • 2
    Romover lid,cook until hard ball stage or 255 F. at about 250 add your vanilla and salt to room temp.eggwhites and beat until holds soft peaks,
  • 3
    Pour syrup from a height of about a foot very slowly into whites. When thick (about 10 mins) drop from sprayed teaspoons onto wax paper.I use two spoons one for dipping and one to get divinity from spoon ,then do a swirl to make pretty,I spray the spoons light with pam, that helps. You have to do this very fast as it sits up really fast. I did learn you can add a little water if sets up to fast,I have never had to do that. Oh I forgot to say add your nuts right when done and stir in I use large spoon for this
