After Trying This Deliciously Simple Recipe For Marshmallows, You'll Never Get Store-bought Again
Marshmallows are chewy, fluffy and often a treat around a nice campfire. You can layer them in a sandwich fashion and make s'mores, and you can also add them into your baking. The original marshmallow was created using marshmallow root as the main ingredient. This is where the marshmallow name came from. In their most standard form, marshmallows contain sugar, gelatin, egg whites and various flavors. A percentage of sugar must be used to stabilize the marshmallow. Inverted sugar is used to attract moisture and keep the sugar in the mixture from crystallizing. Corn syrup can often be used to create the same moisture. Beating the mixture is what creates that fluffy marshmallow texture.
