Tuesdays With Dorie REWIND – Marshmallows

I have been so excited to try this recipe. Rachel’s sister made homemade marshmallows for her daughters’ baptism and they were amazing.

Mine…

Terribly disappointed. The gelatin and sugary-meringue mix became separate, leaving me with a super-sticky white layer and a firm, Jell-O-ish layer of sewage-brown nothingness. They taste fine, but definitely nothing I could share (which was the intention of this Thursday night experiment). Probably because I didn’t have a candy thermometer so I eyeballed it, but…damn.

Will try another recipe some day. Until then…tears.
