Step 1

In a 2 quart saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt.

Cook to hardball stage, (260°F), stirring only until sugar dissolves.

Meanwhile, as temperature of syrup reaches 250°F, beat egg white until stiff peaks form.

When syrup reaches 260°F, very gradually add the syrup to egg whites, beating at high speed with electric mixer.

Add vanilla and beat until candy holds its shape, 4 to 5 minutes.

Stir in the chopped nuts or cherries, if desired.

Quickly drop candy from a teaspoon onto waxed paper, swirling the top of each piece.

Let cool.
