  1. Mix the sugar, syrup, salt and water in a saucepan and place it over low heat; stir until the sugar has dissolved. Wipe sugar crystals from the sides of the pan with a damp cloth.

  2. Remove the pan from the heat and, beating constantly, gradually pour the syrup into the egg whites.
  3. Add the vanilla extract and beat until the mixture will hold its shape when dropped from a spoon.
  4. Add the cherries, mix well, and drop the mixture by spoonsful onto wax paper.
