directions

  • Place egg white in bowl of standing mixer fitted with whisk attachment, and set aside; measure sugar, and set 3 teaspoons aside.
  • Combine remaining sugar and the corn syrup in medium saucepan with 1/4 cup of water, and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to combine; cook syrup without stirring until it reaches 240 degrees, using a candy thermometer.
  • As sugar cooks, pour 3/8 cup cold water into small saucepan, and sprinkle gelatin on it; let stand 5 minutes; put pan over burner on very low heat, and stir to dissolve; leave pan on warm burner.
  • Just before sugar syrup reaches 240 degrees, beat egg white on low speed until foamy; add 1 teaspoon of reserved sugar and the salt; increase the heat to high, and continue beating, sprinkling with remaining 2 teaspoons until medium-stiff peaks have formed; with mixer running, pour syrup into egg white; beat on high speed 2 minutes; add dissolved gelatin; beat until fluffy and cool, about 5 minutes; add vanilla.
  • Sauce will hold at room temperature for 4 hours; after refrigeration, sauce may be heated over a double boiler until lukewarm, and beaten in a standing mixer until fluffy.

    Oh man this is good! I'm trying not to just sit with the bowl and eat it all!! I can't find corn syrup here in the UK, so I used a substitute recipe for it which worked very well. This tastes just like melted marshmallows! Thank you for posting this!!

I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
