Marshmallows

Method

  • In a pot add the water, the sugar, the honey, and transfer over high heat. Stir and let it boil until the mixture’s temperature reaches the 130ο C (265ο F).
  • At the same time, in a pot heat the orange juice along with the gelatin sheets over medium heat. Stir until the gelatin melts and reaches the 80ο C (175ο F).
  • Along with the two preparations, in a mixer’s bowl add the egg whites, salt, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 1-2 minutes, until the mixture starts turning white.
  • Add the hot syrup very slowly into the egg whites, in a steady stream, while beating constantly.
  • In the same way, add the hot juice and keep beating for 15 more minutes until the temperature drops.
  • Transfer half of the mixture to a pastry bag and set it aside. In another pastry bag, spread the red food coloring paste on the inside and transfer the remaining mixture.
  • Spread a little of the mixture on a baking pan and stick a sheet of parchment paper on it. Brush the sunflower oil over the whole surface of the parchment paper and shape the marshmallows however you like. If you want to shape them nicely, without any peaks, press them lightly with wet hands.
  • Set them aside for 24 hours to dry and set.
  • In a bowl add the icing sugar, the corn starch, and mix. Add the marshmallows, mix, and serve.

Tip

Brush your sheet of parchment paper with some oil so that the marshmallows don’t stick to it while drying.

The mixture will be quite sticky until it dries. If you forget to brush oil on it, don’t worry, use a sharp knife to remove them, they should come off quite easily.
