FINALLY got around to posting this and OH BOY am I EXCITED!!!!! These are DELISH! I followed recipe to a "T' but did double it.

This recipe comes from "The Nourishing Gourmet". EXCELLENT resource BTW!

I do not have a candy thermometer so I just set the timer for 8 minutes. I also do not have a stationary blender, so yes, I stood there for 12 minutes, again using the timer and hand-mixed these babies up! TOTALLY WORTH IT!

Again, I am always amazed how SIMPLE it is to cook REAL FOOD! REAL EASY!

Here is an example of the ingredients in STORE BOUGHT marshmallows that people eat (taken from http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_are_the_ingredients_in_marshmallows):

"What are the ingredients in marshmallows?

Answer:

Commercially-manufactured marshmallows can include the following, ingredients, (these are listed on the label of a store-bought brand): corn syrup, sugar, modified corn starch, dextrose, water, gelatin, tetrasodium pyrophosphate (a thickener or emulsifier), artificial flavor, and blue 1(coloring additives will vary between brands and styles). "

YUCK!
