Personal Notes:
Jeanette was a master at making divinity. She even used a hand mixer to make it. I am not sure what egg whites look like that are stiff but not dry . Ha and am sure when I tried this I had a hard time figuring out “when” it held it’s shape. But wanted to include this recipe from the past.
