I plan on trying to make divinity tomorrow. I never had any success when I was a child. My aunt could whip it up and have a conversation on the phone and write out Christmas cards at the same time. THIS year I have my own chickens. I imagine THAT alone, not to mention thirty plus years of maturity, might help. However, failures from decades past still cause me to worry about making a real big mess tomorrow.( mom was never happy about all that waste.) What do I need to be sure I do that the cook book might not tell me? How hard should the egg whites be beaten? do I drizzle in the sugar like I do the oil when I make mayonnaise? and lastly, my cook book calls it 'sea foam', Is that the same thing as 'divinity?' 2 cups sugar 1/2 cup light corn syrup 1/2 cup water 2 egg whites/1 tsp vanilla 1 cup walnut meats boil water, sugar, syrup to 265degrees F-hard ball stage, pour onto egg whites beating constantly, when thick and creamy add vanilla and nuts. That is all of the instruction it has given me. Also, The oldest eggs I have are only four days old. I will set some out tonight, maybe they will whip up tomorrow. And if this is really hard, and you think it is beyond my, or my kitchen aide's skills, tell me. I can always make marshmallows, or pecan kisses. ...or take the day off. (It's those eggs!I love having eggs.) Thank you!
