You can buy white marshmallows, but if you have time try home made marshmallow. It is so much better.
The follow recipe is from the Allergy Downunder website, it is also a recipe in the RPAH Allergy Unit Friendly Food Cook book.. My daughter Julia who loves to bake, has made this recipe a few times now, taking some to school to share with friends. Which has been a big hit.
Add 50 g powdered gelatin or 10 sheets of leaf gelatin to 1 cup of cold water and set aside to soften.
Boil for 15 min, 4 cups of sugar and 2 cups of boiling water and the softened gelatin mixture then cool until lukewarm.
Next, beat this mixture in an electric mixer until thick and white. Pour into 2 wet lamington tins (28 cm x 18 cm) and refrigerate for about 12 hours. if left longer the surface dries more and it is easier to handle.
Cut marshmallow into squares with a large wet knife and turn out into a mixture of 1 cup of icing sugar and 1/2 cup of maize corn flour (cornstarch) – make sure each piece is well coated otherwise they will stick.
Store between layers of waxed paper or baking paper.
