Rustic Homemade Marshmallows W/Honey
Check out the instructional video at the bottom of the post
1 cup filtered water (split into half cups)
2 1/2- 3 tablespoons Great Lakes brand (grass beef gelatin)
1 cup organic light colored honey, maple syrup or half of each
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
optional: Arrowroot starch (in place of the traditional powdered sugar) to coat the outsides of the marshmallows. You can also use other coatings such as cocoa, coconut, cinnamon....
Note: Using a starch works best for coating marshmallows that will be used for roasting or topping sweet potatoes. It helps them to dry out faster and the extra starch helps with the browning process.
