My mother makes the best divinity. I think she got the recipe from her mother.

This recipe worked great for me. I added about 1/2 t vanilla and 1/4 t almond flavoring and it was excellent. I have found in the past that two things affect the end result of divinity, humidity and the egg whites. Fresh eggs will not work. One MUST use eggs that are a few days old. I don't know what the vinegar does but this is a very good recipe. Oh yes, you MUST cook the syrup until it spins a thread and then slowly pour it into the egg whites while beating continuously. Beat until the candy loses its gloss. Must work fast to spoon it unto the waxed paper. Hope this helps.
