Spring brings some exciting additions to the kitchen and one of Mark’s favourites is rhubarb. Making marshmallows at home may seem like a daunting task but it is far easier than you might think.
The colour and flavour of rhubarb is so enticing. It can be used in so many different dishes adding an eye-catching splash of colour. The softer texture of homemade marshmallow is far superior to the shop bought variety. Do be careful with the boiling sugar syrup though. The rhubarb in this recipe means a naturally vibrant colour that will be sure to impress. Once you have mastered this method then it is time to get creative and to try out what ever flavour tickles your fancy.
Marshmallows make lovely petit fours to be served at the end of a meal and they can also be packaged up nicely and given as gifts. Who wouldn’t be happy with a parcel full of light and fluffy pink marshmallows?
