Directions:
In a 2-qt saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, hot water and salt. Cook and stir till sugar dissolves and mixture comes to boiling. Cook to hard-ball stage (250) without stirring. Wipe crystals from sides of pan now and then with fork wrapped in damp cloth. Remove from heat.
Immediately beat egg whites stiff. Pour hot syrup SLOWLY over beaten whites, beating constantly at high speed on mixer (about 5 min.). Add vanilla and beat till mixture forms soft peaks and begins to lose its gloss.
Add nuts, if you wish. Drop divinity from a teaspoon, pushing off with a second spoon, onto a cookie sheet covered with waxed paper. Twirl top! If divinity becomes too stiff for twirling, add a few drops of hot water.

Personal Notes:
When I was growing up, I always looked forward to go to Aunt Jaunita's for Christmas. She always made divinity and it's the best!!! Nobody can make divinity like her. Must be a natural-born talent.
