I know everyone has heard this question before, so here goes. I am new to mmf, I have always use satin ice, which I really like. I am now brave enough to try to use mmf. My question is when do I flavor it? Do I flavor it while melting the marshmellows or while kneading it? I have heard that if you use mmf, then you will not use anything else. Like I said, I really like satin ice, but it is really stiff, takes alot of kneading. I have MS and my hands are really bothering me. I usally get one of my boys to knead if for me without complaints. MMF, looks like it would be easier for me. Any help would be appreciated!!!!!!

If the recipe calls for 2 Tbsp. water, for example, I put 1 Tbsp. water and 1 Tbsp. vanilla. After I put the marshmallows in the bowl, I put in the water and vanilla and heat it in the mocrowave. I just decrease the water according to how much flavoring is going in.

Also I find warming the MMF in the microwave for 10 seconds really helps it be easier to knead. I love MMF. Took me a few batches to finally get it right, but now I absolutely love it! Good luck!
