It’s almost end of November which means many food bloggers will be posting their Christmas recipes soon. Really soon. Just right after this Thanksgiving. Or even earlier. I’ve already seen some of them.
Hopefully, I’ll join this amazing Christmas marathon as well. But I still have some lovely pumpkin stuff to post on. You are going to find the risotto, pasta, salad, and some fabulous desserts on here soon. Let me start it off with these delicious seasonal Pumpkin Marshmallows.
Since December is coming, we can freely start to sum up this year. I could say it has been quite a “marshmallow year” (and sure the lavender one too). So far I’ve got on the blog these recipes for Lavender, Baileys, and Maple Marshmallows. I also have two other recipes which I tried in April and May, but since they don’t belong to any particular season, I’m still waiting for a moment to share with you. Let’s count those scrumptious Mango and Lavender Earl Grey Marshmallows which I made, but didn’t take the pictures. And let me be fully honest with you and reveal that once I screwed them. It was my second attempt – Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallows, but the texture turned out to be strange, too moist. They were delicious anyways!
I cannot believe just last March I thought that making marshmallows would be my personal rocket science. I didn’t like the idea of buying a thermometer. Too sophisticated device to me.
Neither did Andrey! When he saw that monstrous thermometer, he choked up with the coffee and asked wouldn’t I blew our kitchen. It was sad to hear such a question. Did I ever give him the grounds to think this way? Besides, the thermometer is not a torch (which I’ll probably never get. You know, bad credit story haha).
As you know, I haven’t blown the kitchen (yet), and I’ve been enjoying making all these marshmallows.
Definitely this fall I could not resist making a seasonal dessert. That’s why I made these Pumpkin Marshmallows. They’re fluffy and delicate, with a fantastic flavor of the pumpkin spices. Besides the spices, I incorporated the pumpkin puree which introduces a lovely pumpkin flavor and nice color.
What did you say, folks? Exactly! Because these Pumpkin Marshmallows include the real pumpkin, I allow you to grab a double amount of them. I mean, what’s the recommended number of fruit and veggies servings per day?
And what about you guys? Isn’t the pumpkin season over to you? What significant food events have happened to you this year? Which of the mentioned marshmallows would you love to get as your Christmas gift? (just statistical research):)
