Ok I'm going to attempt the Hugh F-W ones with some peppermint extract for a christmassy taste. How long do they keep for?

yes, lots, it's a winner! I use the Hugh F-W recipe on the Guardian website. You can find sugar thermometers in most baking sections, often with all the jam stuff.

One thing I've learned is that you've got to be quite careful pouring the hot sugar syrup onto the gelatine mixture as it really does fizz and splash - if you've got a wide-necked batter jug it's a good idea to put the gelatine in that, then add the sugar syrup, then it's easier to pour down the side of the mixer while you're whisking it into the egg whites. The spout makes it more directional than waving a hot pan full of nuclear syrup around...

Will dig out a recipe later

Yes, lots of times.

You need a freestanding mixer (kenwood or kitchenaid) a sugar thermometer and fairly sound baking/patisserie skills.

Has any one ever made marshmallow? Any tips or fail safe recipes?
