Divinity Drops

2 cups sugar
½ cup water
½ cup light corn syrup
â…› teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
½ teaspoon vanilla
¼cup chopped seedless raisins
¼cup chopped candied cherries and citron halved candied cherries

Combine sugar, water, and syrup in saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Continue boiling, without stirring, until a little of the mixture dropped in cold water forms a hard ball (265° F. on a candy thermometer). A few minutes before syrup is ready, beat salted egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Add syrup slowly, beating constantly. Then beat until mixture becomes very stiff and loses its gloss. Add vanilla and chopped fruit; drop from tablespoon onto waxed paper. Shape; decorate with halved cherries. Makes 20.
