Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Inscrutable Search Request #3412-009-A--

microwaveable divinity

I believe they may be searching for the minor ancient Sumerian god Jiffy Pop, doomed by the grain goddess Ninlil to be roasted in a giant "oven of invisible fire" for three minutes at a time. On occasion, Ninlil would leave Jiffy Pop in the oven too long, and he would stink up the entire palace.

Or not. Could be they were just looking for something like Microwave Divinity, which has little to do with godliness, other than the fact that it combines sugar and pecans in a frothy candy.

3 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg white
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

1- In 3 quart glass bowl, microwave sugar, syrup and water on FULL for 12-18 minutes or until mixture spins a fine thread.

2- In another bowl add salt to egg whites, beating constantly until whites are stiff and form peaks.

3- Slowly pour a thin stream of syrup mixture into egg whites, beating constantly until mixture loses shine and thickens.

4- Stir in vanilla and nuts. Immediately drop by teaspoonsful on waxed paper. If cooked too long, thickens quick. Otherwise sure-fire.

Also nearly impossible to make if the humidity is too high.
