Anyone successfully made their own? I want to try it but don't have a thermometer. Help!

oooh you can make marshmallows! (lurks)

Yes, Martha Stewart has lots of recipes that look easy but I want one that someone has used and that definitely works!

James Martin the sleb chef whose book is called 'baby james' had a recipe for them. I found it by googling 'james martin marshmallows' some months ago.

I bought all the stuff but never got round to making them. Don't think his recipe needs a thermometer.

<<runs into kitchen feeling a baking spree coming on>>

I was wrong

he does mention a thermometer and I've realised its the reason I never got round to making them....

I failed making them - they oouzed all over the very heavy book I used as a weight or was that when I also failed making nouget (without nuts) for my dad

decent price, but omg the rest of the fab stuff on that website, I don't know if I dare!!

Ooo, that site looks great, Flibberty. Could be dangerous.

I am thinking that, if no-one can say they have made them successfully, this might not be a good thing to try.

I was about 17 when I tried

I make fab fudge & toffee

Katymac, do you have a toffee recipe you can share?

KatyMac Mon 07-Jul-08 22:02:17

Yeeees But it's in the attic (next time I go up?)- tbh toffee is always a let down - I do a nice toffee rice krispie cake - & a toffee sauce for dipping apples into

Fudge now I can do fudge

UnderRated Mon 07-Jul-08 22:26:11

Hmmm, I can do fudge too but never tried toffee. Perhaps I'll attempt the marshmallows first. If I do, I'll report back smile

There's soooo much mess. And injury. I could have bought the farking marshmallows for $1.

<mutter, mutter>

Oh dear

Are you alright

UnderRated Sat 12-Jul-08 21:46:58

Only minor injuries now and kitchen more or less ok

Next time I have some hair-brained idea involving hot sugar and gelatin, please don't encourange me

I've made them. But they are SUCH a giant pain in the arse and expensive I'd rather buy them.
