MARSHMALLOW ENTRY UPDATE: PLEASE CHECK THE FEBRUARY 14, 2008 ENTRY (OR CLICK THE "FOOD" LABELS) TO FIND MY LATEST EXPERIENCE IN MAKING VEGETARIAN (NOT VEGAN) MARSHMALLOWS.
I never considered myself to be a big marshmallow fan. I like the little ones floating in hot chocolate, and who doesn't like a roasted marshmallow over the campfire and then put into a s'more? And I had tried store-bought homemade before (oxymoron?-yes) and again, fine but nothing special. Then I went to Bittersweet Cafe on College Ave. the other day and had a true homemade marshmallow with my hot chocolate. Yum, yum and double-triple yum. So now I'm obssessed with trying all the homemade and pseudo-homemade that I can find. Andronico's makes their own very delicious "hand-crafted" version (look for them near the fancy cake and pie case). Here's a link to a homemade recipe that I haven't tried yet so can't vouch for - but many reviewers seem to like it so I think I'll try it soon.
