Directions:
Combine sugar, syrup, water and salt in a heavy 2-quart saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Reduce heat and continue to cook, without stirring to hard ball stage (250), Beat egg whites until stiff. When syrup mixture reaches hard ball stage (250), gradually pour about 1/2 of the cooked syrup into beaten egg whites, beating constantly with electric mixer at high speed.

Continue to cook the remaining syrup to soft crack stage (272). While beating constantly, pour the remaining syrup in a fine stream into the egg white mixture. Continue beating until mixture loses its gloss and holds stiff peaks. Add vanilla (and nuts, if desired). Pour into a buttered pan or drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper.
