My step-daughter is a vegetarian, like her parents, but of course, since she's 8 years-old, marshmallows have quite a pull on her... She wants so bad to try them! So i've been looking for recipes.
I've found online a recipe with agar agar, but since I didn't have any (yet! will go get some today!), I decided to give this recipe a try, even though it's so badly rated.
I read all the reviews, and hoped I would be one of the two or three people who commented here, who successfully made marshmallows from this recipe.
Unfortunately... no. The crumbly white mess is here to stay. I put the saucepan and everything else that touched it into hot water, so it doesn't set and I have an easier time washing it; and I'm gonna look into candy recipes so that I can use the "stuff" (for lack of better word) into something else.
Now, the lack of any gelatin/agar agar/other "jellifying" agents must account for something, but since some people did get marshmallows, I must look at what i've done. I think that i may have used the electric mixer too hard, because it certainly didn't take 10-12 minutes for the soft peaks to arise.
So... if you do decide to try this, use the electric mixer at the lowest speed, take your time, ... and good luck!
