Home-made marshmallows

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Unflavored gelatin; (gelatine)
5 tablespoons Cold water
1 pinch Salt
1½ cup Sugar
7 tablespoons Hot water
\N \N Food coloring of choice
\N \N Toasted coconut

Place unflavored gelatin, cold water and salt in mixing bowl. Place sugar and hot water in saucepan and bring to boil. Pour hot mixture over gelatin and stir until gelatin has dissolved. Beat until thick and white (It will increase greatly in volume. I use my Kitchen-Aid stand mixer and this part can take anywhere from 10-15 minutes beating at 7 or higher - be patient - it's worth it!)

Add coloring and mix until desired color is achieved. Pour into buttered 8x8 pan (or 13x9 if you want more, thinner marshamllows). Let stand until set. Cut into squares with a hot knife and toss with toasted coconut. The result is softer than commercially produced marshmallows, but oh-so- yummy!!

I have added different types of flavorings with success such as strawberry extract, coconut extract and mint extract. Add flavoring when you add the coloring
