Hello everyone! The pink temptations of the day are these delicious homemade raspberry marshmallows made with fresh raspberries.
They make a beautiful gift for someone you love, or serve them to your guests. They are super easy to make!
- 9 oz. (250 g) raspberries (or other fruits of your choice)
- 1/2 cup (110 g) regular sugar
- 8 gelatine sheets (leaf gelatine)
- 2/3 cup (150 g) regular sugar
- 2/3 cup or 8 1/2 fl oz. (150 g) liquid glucose
- 5 oz. (140 g) raspberry purée
Raspberry purée: In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and raspberries, then bring to the boil and cook for 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and strain to remove the seeds, you should end up with approximately 5 oz. (140 grams) purée.
Put the gelatine leaves into a bowl filled with cold water.
Put the 2/3 cup (150 g) sugar, half the glucose and half the raspberry purée into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and continue boiling until the mixture has reached a temperature of 230 °F (110 °C). It’s important to use a sugar thermometer here!
When the mixture has reached the correct temperature, take the pan off the heat.
Pick up the softened gelatine leaves from the cold water and squeeze out most of the water. Put into the boiled mixture and stir until the gelatine has dissolved.
Put the remaining half of the glucose and raspberry purée into a mixing bowl and start whisking on a medium speed.
Carefully pour the boiled mixture into the mixing bowl while still whisking. Whisk on high speed for about 4-5 minutes.
Line a 6 x 10-inch (15 x 25 cm) tray or pan with baking parchment and dust with powdered sugar.
Pour in the marshmallow mixture and smooth the surface.
Dust with some more powdered sugar and leave to rest for a couple of hours.
Dust a sheet of baking parchment with some powdered sugar. Cut the set marshmallow mixture into cubes.
Make sure all sides are covered in powdered sugar.
They make a super cute gift, don’t you agree?
I just love these marshmallows.
I hope you are inspired to make your own fruit marshmallows, just choose your favorite flavor! You could use passion fruit, lemon, orange.. just to name a few.
Have a great day everyone, hugs from me to you.
