And here is another recipe for homemade marshmallows:

Homemade Marshmallows

.75 oz (21 g) unflavored gelatin (3 envelopes of Knox gelatin)

1/2 cup cold water

2 cups granulated sugar

2/3 cups light corn syrup

1/4 cup water

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Line 9 x 9 inch (23 x 23 cm) pan with plastic wrap and lightly oil it. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water. Soak for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine sugar, corn syrup and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a rapid boil and boil hard for 1 minute. Pour the boiling syrup into soaked gelatin and turn on the mixer, using the whisk attachment, to high speed. Add the salt and beat for 12 minutes; add the vanilla extract and beat to incorporate.

Scrape marshmallow into the prepared pan and spread evenly (Lightly greasing your hands and the spatula helps a lot here). Take another piece of lightly oiled plastic wrap and press lightly on top of the marshmallow, creating a seal. Let mixture sit for a few hours, or overnight, until cooled and firmly set.

In a shallow dish, combine equal parts cornstarch (or rice flour) and confectioners' sugar. Remove marshmallow from pan and cut into equal pieces with scissors (the best tool for the job), a chef's knife, or sharp Pizza cutter. It helps to oil the cutter, just wipe some oil across the blade(s) with a paper towel. Dredge each piece of marshmallow in confectioners' sugar mixture.

Store in an airtight container.

Makes about 40 large marshmallows, depending on the size you choose to cut them.
