We called it seafoam but lots of southerners call it Divinity. http://southernfood.org/okra/?p=3400

    WOW
      Thanks for posting that article. I remember talking with Fred at a roadfood gathering some time ago (several years) but had no idea my comments would be included in his article.
     
    Thanks for posting !!

      That's very cool Al!  Sure do wish Fred still posted here, but he is a busy man.

        I love Divinity. When I was a kid it was always a treat to go the Edgewater Mall in Gulfport, MS and visit the candy store there for a few pieces of Divinity. Always made with pecans. Man, I wish I had some now!

          My mom n grandma made it from scratch, love it but begged for toughjack, a candy made from molasses. I've never seen toughjack for sale in a candy store.

            My mom and grandmother also made it from scratch, no recipes, they just knew when it was right.  Personally I never cared much for it, too sweet for me.
            Awesome, AL that you were quoted in the article!  And Janeen too!

              I too grew up with Seafoam that my Mother and Grandmother made.
              My Grandmother would go outside and 'feel the air' to make sure there wasn't too much humidity that day.

              They also made it with no 'fancy' thermometers, just the drop a ball of the bubbling mixture in a glass of water.
              As a kid, I was shooed to the other side of the kitchen, when it was time to combine the bubbling hot ingredients.

              The nuts were not 'store bought' but whatever my Dad and and I could go out in the woods and gather.

              Their's was far superior to what any store put out.

                I might be wrong about this, but my understanding is that seafoam is made with brown sugar and divinity is made with white sugar.  Can anyone verify that?
