Honey Drops - 1920s

2 cups white sugar, 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 large spoonful strained honey, butter size of an egg. Boil until it threads, take from fire and add 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring, then pour gradually, beating at the same time, over the beaten white of a fresh egg; beat until firm enough to drop on oiled paper without running.
