"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
3 cups sugar 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup white corn syrup 2 egg whites, beaten 1 cup chopped nuts 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix sugar and water and corn syrup. Boil until a soft ball is formed when dropped in cold water or until it forms a long hair. Pour half of this mixture over the whites of two eggs, which have been beaten to a stiff froth, beating all the while. Replace the other half of the syrup mixture on the stove and boil to crack stage (260º). Pour this over the first mixture, beating constantly. Add the nuts and vanilla. Beat until stiff. Drop by teaspoons on waxed paper.
