Place all ingredients into a thick-bottomed saucepot, starting with the sugar, then add salt, cream of tartar and egg whites.


Finally, add the water.  Tip: We don’t add the vanilla extract until the end.


Place this mixture over medium-low heat. Beat it constantly for about 5 to 7 minutes, or until sugar dissolves and stiff peaks form.
