    Carambola's Note:

    Originally marshmallows were made from the marsh mallow root and were a throat lozenge. The common candy is now made with gelatin and contains no marsh mallow root. This recipe is 100% kosher. Vegetarian / contains egg (no gelatin)

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pieces

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 tablespoons marshmallows, roots
    • 28 tablespoons refined sugar
    • 20 tablespoons gum tragacanth (or gum arabic)
    • 2 cups water (Water of orange flowers for aroma or instead of plain water)
    • 1 -2 egg white, well beaten

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make sure the mallow roots aren't moldy or too woody. Marshmallow gives off almost twice its own weight of mucilaginous gel when placed in water.
    2. 2
      Make a tea of marshmallow roots by simmering in a pint of water for twenty to thirty minutes. Add additional water if it simmers down. Strain out the roots.
    3. 3
      Heat the gum and marshmallow decoction (water) in a double boiler until they are dissolved together. Strain with pressure.
    4. 4
      Stir in the sugar as quickly as possible. When dissolved, add the well beaten egg whites, stirring constantly, but take off the fire and continue to stir. Lay out on a flat surface. Let cool, and cut into smaller pieces.
