How to make it

  • Butter a baking sheet and set aside.
  • Heat a saute pan on medium heat, add walnut pieces and sautee about three minutes to toast.
  • Do not let them burn.
  • Remove walnut pieces from pan and set aside.
  • Pour sugar, corn syrup, salt and water in heavy saucepan.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until mixture reaches hard ball stage, 260 degrees
  • As mixture is cooking, place egg whites in a cool, medium bowl and beat until they form stiff peaks.
  • Pour the cooked syrup mixture slowly into egg whites, beating constantly.
  • Add rum, raisins and walnut pieces.
  • Beat until mixture holds its shape
  • Using a buttered teaspoon, drop individual pieces of candy onto baking sheet.
  • Number of Servings: 40-50
  • ****************************************************
  • Notes from the Cook: You can use waxed paper rather than a prepared baking sheet, if you choose. I often test my candy's doneness by dropping a small bit on a piece of wax paper to see if it holds its shape.
