Help! Out of corn syrup for marshmallows...
I'd like to make marshmallows for Christmas Eve tomorrow and I forgot to pick up corn syrup for my recipe. I have tons of honey lying around though. Can I sub it, or will it taste weird?
Go to the other Marshmallow Question thread; there's a link to a HUGE egullet thread on marshmallows. I read the whole thing yesterday (lots of downtime), and at least one person made it with honey instead-- said it was very good, you can taste the honey, but if it's a strongly flavored marshmallow, it won't come through. I'm hoping to make some tomorrow, too, have fun!
I cut these today. They are even better than I remembered! I took the advice of one of my commenter and added some cinnamon to the powdered sugar. Absolutely delicious! I think I'll wait until I have a candy thermometer before trying again, but I think I'd do this again sometime.
