How To Make Organic Marshmallows!



Have you ever looked for organic marshmallows at the store? I have and I have never found any! I have found organic "fluff", but that is the closest I have seen.


So, after watching the episode of Good Eats with Alton Brown (above), I decided I could take his recipe and make my own organic marshmallow. Yes, it can be done!

Here are the ingredients listed on The food Network:

  • 3 packages unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup ice cold water, divided
  • 12 ounces granulated sugar, approximately 1 1/2 cups
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • Nonstick spray
Here are the products I use to make it organic!

I must warn you, after you've had these, a store bought marshmallow will never enter your house again! Pair this with some organic hot chocolate and you have a delicious treat!

I'm not against a non-organic marshmallow (they sneak into our house somehow and disappear into our mouths ^~^), but this is wonderful. I like the alternative of organic. Is the organic gelatin stuff expensive online?

My entire family requests these now (non-organic family members too). They are just so good!

The gelatin is not expensive in my opinion. It was $1.79 for 6 sheets. I believe a sheet is the equivalent of a package of the other kind of gelatin.

I hope you try this recipe - let me know what you think if you do!

I am so tempted to try this. The only reason I hesitate is the fact that I keep gaining weight with this pregnancy. I am afraid if I make them I will eat them. We will see if I have enough will power.

Lorrie - Don't do it if you are afraid you'll eat them... you will!

The recipe says it will make 9 dozen! 108 marshmallows just staring at you won't help LOL ;)

I've got to try these. I've been wanting to make marshmallows for quite some time now and I know my kids would love these! (I stopped buying store-bought kind this year. I don't even like marshmallows--but I've heard homemade are so good!)

Jennifer - these taste nothing like the marshmallows you get in the store, they are so much better. I hope you do try it!!!
