Coconut Divinity

  • 1/4 lb coconut, shredded
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup white corn syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 egg whites, stiffly beaten
Boil sugar, corn syrup and water together until it spins a thread or reaches 230°F. Take 1 cup of the syrup and set aside and take a deep breath. Boil remaining syrup until it cracks in ice water or reaches 290°F. To the stiffly beaten egg whites, slowly add the first cup of syrup that was set aside and take a deep breath, then the remaining syrup, beating constantly. As the beating becomes difficult, add the flavoring and shredded coconut. When the mass can no longer be stirred, form in a loaf or drop by teaspoonfuls onto oiled wax paper.
