“This is a candy made from meringue and is said to resemble sea foam. I found this recipe in my stepmother's recipe box. I believe it was her mother's. This is amazing stuff!”

  1. In a medium pot, combine sugar, water, salt and cream of tarter. Cover mixture and let boil 5 minutes.
  2. Uncover the pot after the 5 minutes of boiling have elapsed, wipe the sides of the pot with a damp cloth. Continue boiling until the mixture reaches the firm ball stage.
  3. Pour the mixture over stiffly beaten egg whites, and stir in vanilla. Continue beating until the candy holds its shape when dropped from a spoon. Drop the mixture by spoonfuls onto wax paper, let cool.

It's just like you said....... Great



This wasn't at all what I expected. It actually ended up in the trash. The egg whites curdled when the sugar mix was added and it just was terrible.

This is not sea foam, and this is why I rated it 1 star. It is divinity. It is ok as a divinity recipe, BUT if you are looking for SEA FOAM, look at a different one.
