"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:  
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. Kayro light corn syrup

Directions:
Combine sugar, syrup, water, salt, and cream of tartar. Cover and boil 5 minutes. Uncover. Wipe sides of pan with damp cloth. Boil without stirring to a firm ball stage (245 -248 deg F.) Remove from fire. Pour slowly, beating constantly, over stiffly beaten egg whites. Continue beating until mixture holds its shape when dropped from spoon. Add flavoring and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper, or pour into well-buttered pan. When cold cut in squares.

Family Note: We never cover the pot nor do we use cream of tartar. For this recipe, hard ball stage means the "crackle" stage which you can hear when testing for doneness of syrup. บบบ
