Good Housekeeping Cookbook
In 2-qt saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, water, salt; stir over low heat until sugar dissolves. Cover; boil 1 minute or until all sugar crystals on side of pan have dissolved. Uncover; cook gently, without stirring, to 265 degrees F. on candy thermometer, or until a little mixture, dropped into cold water, forms almost brittle ball.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, with mixer at high speed (or with hand beater), beat egg whites until stiff. Slowly pour on syrup, beating, until mixture loses gloss and small amount dropped from spoon holds its shape. Add nuts, vanilla. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased shallow pan (don't scrape saucepan; leavings may be sugary). If desired, sprinkle with chopped nuts, chocolate, or tinted coconut. Makes about 1½ lb.
Divinity Fudge: Pour mixture into a greased 9" x 9" x 2" pan. Cool; cut into squares.
