Does anyone have a good recipe for homemade marshmallows? I made them once, many many years ago, but the recipe is long lost.
The recipe from Alton Brown on food network is great.
Thanks, sayhellojana. I'll look there.
I made them for the first time. yummmmm. I just used a basic recipe from about.com it was sooo good.
I made them too and had a photo on cc but they deleted it as it was not cake related
Can't remember which recipe I used but they were so yummy and well worth making
Here is everything you need to know about MM
The Alton Brown recipe on food network's site is AMAZING! After I made them the first time my people all beg for them... definitely a 5 star.
mARTHA STEWARTS MARSHMALLOW RECIPE!
2 1/2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
Confectioners' sugar (for dusting)
Combine gelatin and 1/2 cup cold water in the bowl of an electric mixer with whisk attachment.
Let it stand 30 minutes.
Combine granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt and 1/2 cup of water in a small heavy saucepan;
place over low heat and stir until sugar has dissolved. Wash down sides of pan with a wet pastry
brush to dissolve sugar crystals.
Clip on a candy thermometer; raise heat to high. Cook syrup without stirring until it reaches 244
degrees (firm-ball stage). Immediately remove pan from heat.
With mixer on low speed, slowly and carefully pour syrup into the softened gelatin.
Increase speed to high; beat until mixture is very thick and white and has almost tripled in
volume, about 15 minutes. Add vanilla; beat to incorporate.
Generously dust an 8 x 12-inch glass baking pan with confectioners' sugar. Pour marshmallow
mixture into pan. Dust with confectioners' sugar; let stand overnight, uncovered, to dry out.
