we interrupt the wine for ....


home-made marshmallows!

we had a mini-ice storm the past few days & i decided it was high time to try another recpie from Jam it, Pickle it, Cure it. The winner for a cold icy night: marshmallows!


{hot sugar, water, corn syrup, & a pinch of salt meet unflavored gelatin in the shiny red mixer}


{after about 8 minutes of whipping & a hour of rest you have a marshmallow fit for a giant. or buddy the elf perhaps.}



{cut them down to size, & toss with some more powdered sugar. voila.}



{the best dern hot coco i've had in a while!}
