Holiday.Cook's picture
Ingredients
  Sugar 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Lime gelatin 3 Ounce
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Light corn syrup 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Lime juice 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Diamond walnuts 2 Cup (32 tbs), chopped
  Egg whites 2
Directions

In large heavy saucepan, combine sugar, water, corn syrup and salt.
Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves.
Cover and cook over medium-low heat 3 to 4 minutes.
Uncover and cook, without stirring, over medium heat until 248°F registers on candy thermometer (firm-ball stage).
Continue cooking and, at this point, in large heat-proof bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
Gradually beat in gelatin until stiff peaks form.
Beat in lime juice.
Set aside.
Cook candy mixture to 260°F (mixture will form a hard ball in cold water).
Beating at medium speed, slowly pour the hot syrup into the egg white mixture.
Do not scrape sides of saucepan.
Continue beating until mixture loses its gloss.
Quickly stir in walnuts and drop by large teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper, or turn into buttered 11x7-inch baking pan.
Let stand until firm, then cut into squares.
Store candy in tightly covered container.
Raspberry or Strawberry Divinity:
Substitute raspberry or strawberry flavored gelatin; use lemon juice instead of lime.
