Marshmallows

Free of: Gluten, Corn, Soy,Dairy
I have to tell you, I didn't even know you could make marshmallows.  I haven't had any in the house since we found out that one of our kids was allergic to corn.  My mom saw this recipe on Martha's show and told me about it.  I made it with just one tweek.    So making them homemade, has made it possible to have marshmallows again. Yipeeeee!  We can have rice krispy treats and s'mores.

I used Martha Stewart's recipe,  http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/vanilla-marshmallows  and instead of the 2/3 cup of corn syrup I used agave syrup.  It was a sight to behold, making these marshmallows.  At first they don't look like much, but then after the twelve minutes of mixing in the Kitchen Aid, they really turn out like the real thing.  The first time I made them, the kids gobbled them faster than I could get powdered sugar on them.  So when I stored them for all of a day, they were sticky.  Dusting them in the powdered sugar is really the key to prevent that.  I recommend this recipe for anyone who has a corn allergy.

*Quick note:  So far I have stored the marshmallows in an air tight container for three weeks now and they are still good.
