If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Strawberry divinity (untested)

This recipe is written in a handwriting I don't recognize.

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup Karo corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 eggs whites
  • 1 package strawberry flavored gelatin (e.g., Jell-o)
  • 1 cup nuts

  1. Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy-bottomed saucepan
  2. Boil together until mixture reaches 252°F or hard ball stage*
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff
  4. Beat in the strawberry flavored gelatin
  5. Pour syrup in slowly 
  6. Add nuts
  7. Beat until candy loses its glossy sheen

*If you aren't using a candy thermometer (which I highly recommend) you can test candy the old fashioned way using cold water. Click here to read all about testing candy using cold water.
