Mix together sugar, corn syrup, water and salt in 1 1/2 quart casserole. Cook on high for 20-25 minutes, or until hard ball stage (310 degrees) is reached. Stir once or twice during cooking. While syrup cooks, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form in large mixing bowl. Gradually pour hot syrup over egg whites while beating at high speed until mixture is thickened and candy starts to lose its gloss. Beating may require about 12 minutes. Add vanilla and nuts to beaten mixture. Drop by teaspoons onto waxed paper. Yield: 6-7 dozen pieces.
