SOMETHING SWEET



Nellie’s Divinity Fudge

2 ½ cups sugar

½ cup of Karo Syrup (wht)

½ cup cold water

Boil the above until it spins a thread. Beat whites of 2 eggs stiff. When the above mixture spins a thread put ½ of it in with the egg and beat good. Then add the other half.

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup nut meats



Nellie’s recipe is an old candy recipe I found in my Aunt’s recipe book. Nellie Mae (Hewitt) Lee was my Aunt’s cousin.
