What are your recipes?

I love to make marshmallows fresh.

Gelatin, water, sugar, glucose, vanilla bean and salt.

You'll need a good mixer with a whip.
bake first, ask questions later.
Oooh food, my favorite!

As much as I hate to say it the recipe I found that worked the best is Martha Stewart's. They just turned out the best out of any of them but I would add some vanilla to them.

hah, i wsa just discussing marshmallow-making with my bf last night :talk:

here's the first and only recipe i've used. i was really happy with the way they turned out.....

1/4 c. powdered gelatin
1 c. cold water
2 c. white sugar
2 egg whites
2 c. powdered sugar

in a saucepan, soak the gelatin in the water. after the gelatin has softened, about 10 minutes, add the white sugar and gently dissolve over low heat, about 8 minutes. turn off the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
in a mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. fold in the powdered sugar. turn the mixer on low and slowly pour in the cooled gelatin mixture. increase the speed until white and thick. the volume should be doubled in size.
line a 8x8 square pan with foil. butter the foil and coat with extra powdered sugar. pour the marshmallow mixture into the pan and sprinkle with powdered sugar. cover with plastic and let sit for 3 hrs.

mine's close to Altons' only has egg whites.

soften gelatin
heat sugar, water, corn syrup to 240-50
beat whites stiff

Add gelatin to boiled sugar goo, beat all into eggwhites

add flavorings toward end of beating.

cornstarch/powdered sugar in sprayed pans, turn and let cure for several hours if not overnight.
Air dry prior to putting in a sealed container.

Have a blast with flavor combos.....raspberry, mandrian orange, chocolate, chocolate orange, spicy mexican chocolate, vanilla bean, raspberry orange, tropical passion, mocha, coffee.......:p

Been seeing artisan marshmallows in some of the local markets lately. Maybe I'll buy some just to compare their taste/texture to commercial stuff.

There was a recipe recently in Bon Appetit (I think). I cut it out to make with my 12-year-old nephew next time he visits.

My wife and I have used Martha Stewart's recipe for a number of years. We always make them around Christmas time and flavor them with a number of different extracts. Vanilla, Peppermint, and Almond all work well, especially in marshmallows destined for Hot Chocolate. Orange flavored marshmallows might make an interesting 'smore though.
