Sweetness and light


Today, because they were looking for volunteers, and also because they are yum, I made marshmallows.  I have, I confess made them before, and one of my first posts was on the trials and tribulations of those first attempts.  In short, ones made with agar agar or vegegel just don’t work.  And the enormous amount of washing up all those attempts made, meant I haven’t made them since!

The preparation of the tin is essential as you need to be able to get them out once they have set into their pillows of softness.  Sally, one of our teachers suggested some coconut with my raspberries in the middle.  In short they were fantastically sweet and delicious.

This time round, with absolutely amazing help (& patience) from Florrie, Sally and Fionnula in K3, the experience was much better, and successful, and the washing up not so daunting.  So I definitely will make them again.
