This is the Marshmallows cut so you can see the nice big squares with the lush Pumpkin fluff inside! THESE ARE WONDERFUL!
4, 1oz packs of Knox Gelatine
1/2 Cup Cold Water
Stir that together in a very DEEP mixing bowl & let sit for 1/2 hour. NEXT:
IN a large DEEP HEAVY PAN place the following:
1/2 Cup Water
3 Cups Sugar
2 Cups Light Corn Syrup
1/2 TSP Salt
1, 15oz. Can Pumpkin
2 TSP VANILLA
2 TSP Cinnamon
Dash of Cloves. Nutmeg & Ginger if desired
Over low heat stir this together until sugar is melted. NOW IT GET TRICKY! Over HIGH heat cook & STIR until mixture reaches 244 degrees hard ball candy stage. Wear an oven mitt so splatters from candy do not burn & stir so candy does not stick & burn on the bottom of the pan! as SOON as it reaches 244 degrees REMOVE FROM HEAT & add vanilla & spices, stir well. NOW slowly pour mixture into your gelatine mixture beating with a mixer as you pour. I use a hand mixer! Get someone to pour as you beat. Now beat on high for 15 minutes! YES 15 minutes! You will get LOVELY FLUFFY MARSHMALLOW! DO NOT QUIT BEFORE 15 MINUTES or you will not get FLUFFY Marshmallows! In a glass 9x13 pan butter the pan & then dust with any of the following:
Confectioners Sugar & Cinnamon Mixture ( 2 Cups sugar to 3 TSP Cinnamon)
Pour Marshmallow mixture spooning it in to the pan that you prepared. Cover the top with any of the above you chose.
NOW LET PAN SIT OUT OVER NIGHT to set up. In the morning cut into squares the size you wish & dip the sides into the above you chose to use for the pan & the top of the Marshmallows! DELICIOUS & UNIQUE!
