Hi all you kiwis out there! I'm just getting started (yay!)...twas a childhood love that time and life killed. I've got most supplies, but white marshmallows! Does anyone know where to get them? Or what brand you can get them in? We seem to only have the white and pink mix, which means I will need to buy twice as many and sort them out to make white MMF, in the regular, budget and cooking brands.
Love some advice if you knowicon_smile.gif

Here a thread that identifies Pascall's and the Chocolate Box as sellers of white marshmallows in AU:

not from there but if you're unable to find them...they're incredibly easy to make!

I just get mine from the bulk bins and just pick out the white ones to put in my bag.

If you have a bulk food warehouse there, they should have some. They sell them to cafe's for making hot chocolate. I get 1 kg bags of white ones here.

For some reason getting hold of things from wholesalers here is really tough! We don't have bulk wharehouses. I think there are so few people, relatively speaking, that they want to make sure no one is getting a cheap deal lol.

My fave marshmallow recipe, from a weightwatchers book:

soak 1/3c gelatin in 1c cold water, stir to mix. Mix together 4 c sugar, 2 c hot water in a pan, stir over low heat without boiling till sugar is dissolved. Stir in the gelatine mix till somooth. Bring to boil, boil uncovered 10 mins. Cool till warm. Put in a big bowl, add 2ts vanilla essence and 2ts lemon juice, or if wished sub orange juice or rosewater (in which case maybe leave out vanilla?) and using electric beaters (oh, believe me, use electric. I tried to do it by hand as a teenager with no kitchen equipment in the flat and it made a tooth chippingly hard mound, it was like concrete), beat till doubled in size and firm peaks form about 5 mins. Rinse a glass baking dish in water, spoon mixture in, fridge 1 or 2 hours till firm. Turn out onto coconut, cut, roll in coconut, or icing sugar if you aren't serving it on it's own.

I like this because it's really easy, and used ingredients I had to hand. Makes a massive bowl, great for hungry birthdays.

If you live near a Warehouse store you can purchase bags of white marshmallows there, also online if you don't mind paying the postage. Here's the link:
