Ladies and Gentlemen!
You’ve been waiting for this historic day
for ages for a few days.
You’ve been intrigued. You’ve been that excited that you’ve probably (and hopefully) lost sleep over it.
You’ve been thinking and thinking over trying to guess what kind of a new kick I am having now. Perhaps, you can’t believe my donut love is over, and I am not suffering from this donut-addiction.
I am not. But I do have a new kick – on homemade marshmallows!
I had been raising a skeptical eye at making them for a long time. I used to think it’s such a hard and messy work to make them that it’s better not to start at all. Okay, in my case they could be a bit messy (check the name of my blog!). Moreover, I had been thinking homemade marshmallows were pretty much the same those from the store.
Perhaps, I just was scared and needed to pass that period. I already had the same issues with ice cream and macarons. Now it’s the time for marshmallows. Am I that kind of guys to whom it’s essential to be scared first? Perhaps. I don’t care as long as I don’t screw it up.
I made my first marshmallows on the Easter weekend. I bought a candy thermometer since it’s a crucial part of this work. However, I was so pumped that while being at the supermarket I didn’t get corn syrup (honestly, I didn’t scrutinize the recipes – no wonder. Remember: I was pumped).
Since we had a jar of maple syrup at home, I decided why the hell not? Probably, for a minute I was thinking I might have come up with a new genius recipe for marshmallows. I even googled it. Google told me not to be ridiculous and provided thousands of these ideas.
Okay, next time.
The most important thing is that these marshmallows turned out outrageously amazing – so delicate, delicious, and fluffy, with the distinctive maple flavor. And they were definitely different from the package of marshmallows that you’ve bought, in the better way – they are million times better! And lastly, they are not that hard to make. At all. You will need just 20 minutes. Great deal, eh? Don’t hesitate folks. Go tomorrow for a thermometer. Don’t you worry about the recipes – you will easily find a number of them here.
That’s all for today.
Hi – I’m Ben, a blogger, recipe developer, and food photographer. I’m glad you’re here! I hope you will enjoy hundreds of delicious recipes and a pinch of havoc in the kitchen.
