In my youth I helped Granny make mountains of Divinity. She always said "don't make Divinity on rainy days." Thank you.
This recipe is quick and easy. It turned out delicious, just like my Mom used to make!! I opted to use diced candied cherries instead of pecans. My Mom often used diced gumdrops in hers. Whatever you choose to add or add nothing at all, it will be yummy!
Sounds fairly cmlose to my receipe. Divinity doesn't work well in extremely humid weather, I skip rainy days. I have alwats used the twice cook method. Half the syrup to firm ball then the other half to hard crack. Candy thermometers are a good idea for some I have always tested in cold water.
This is not particularly my favorite kind of candy but I thought it was pretty good and the people that I made it for loved it. Unfortunatly, mine were a little flat but I think it was my fault. I will try it again next Christmas.
