How to make halal marshmallows without gelatin

Homemade marshmallows

It doesn't really matter whether you use ground or gelatine plates. You can also take Agartine if you want it to be vegetarian, in this case even vegan. But I wasn't sure whether 20 grams of gelatin plates also equals 20 grams of ground gelatin. Sometimes I lack the imagination. That's why I ground the gelatine plates with the coffee grinder and weighed them afterwards.

Chop up gelatine plates with scissors,

Grind gelatin.

Reweighing. 20 grams is 20 grams. Those are things, I really have a knot in my head and before I somehow write crap here and then someone tells me you have to weigh the air and it is more or less ground, then I'll try it out beforehand .

Now we make a mixture so that the marshmallow mass does not stick to the mold.

1 tablespoon of powdered sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

Mix the powdered sugar with the cornstarch

Now the mold in which the marshmallow mass is poured to dry, smeared with vegetable oil.

Put the oil on a kitchen towel

The oil is not there to prevent the mass from sticking, but rather the surface so that the mixture of cornstarch and powdered sugar adheres better to the walls of the pan.

Using a sieve, I sprinkle the sugar and cornstarch mixture into the mold. This then prevents the compound from sticking to the mold and so that it can be easily removed from the mold again after cooling. My shape was a bit big for the amount of sugar I used. The best is about 20 x 20 cm. Not everything is screwed up by the separating mixture, the form doesn't need so much and it doesn't have to be that high at the edges. You still need the rest for the marshmallows when they are cut, because they would then be sticky again on the cut edges.

Now it's time to prepare the marshmallow mixture.

Add 150 milliliters of water to the ground gelatine in a saucepan.

Mix the gelatine with the water and let it swell for a good two minutes and then briefly bring to the boil.

In the meantime, sieve 250 grams of powdered sugar into a mixing bowl.

Here the powdered sugar is sifted.

Sifted powdered sugar

I use vanilla from the mill for good taste

You can do that, but you don't have to

Always stir the gelatine thoroughly while it is boiling

The gelatine is then completely dissolved.
The dissolved gelatine comes straight from the stove into the mixing bowl and then beat the mixture with a hand mixer or a food processor until it starts to pull strings. It takes about five minutes.

When the mass becomes more solid, it comes into the prepared shape.

With an oiled spatula, which is usually used for baking, the mixture is later smoothed out in the mold.

This is where the marshmallow mass comes into the mold.

Now the mass only has to cool for a good hour at room temperature.

After an hour, carefully reach under the mass to see whether it can be removed from the mold.

It works like crazy for me and the mass goes out of shape without any problems.

Place the hardened Marshmallow mass on a surface.

I use cookie molds from the Christmas bakery to cut out. When it comes to things like that, I'm totally anemic and have no ideas. You can also cut something out with the knife, or cut out something.

Here you can see the cut out marshmallows and in front the rest of the marshmallow mass that you can feed your children. Dust the cut marshmallows with the remains of the cornstarch and powdered sugar mixture so that they don't stick to the sides.

I stacked the marshmallows in a can so they could be stored airtight.

Always put a layer of parchment paper in between, but it doesn't have to be. Given the crowd, it would most likely be attacked by a horde of guests and after that that would be history. That's why I would make at least double the amount, if you're serious. I just wanted to try out for you whether it works.

Now they are packaged for storage and are waiting for imitators. How does it taste? Totally awesome! Soft to the bite, delicious taste. Great mouthfeel, that's really THE hammer.

I hope you enjoy copying and enjoy your meal.
