GAPS Friendly Marshmallow Recipe

[et_pb_section bb_built="1"][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.10.2"] What if I told you that you could have a treat that is GAPS legal AND is good for you??? The GAPS marshmallow does just that. This simple treat is basically made up of gelatin, honey, water and optional vanilla. You can use this treat to get extra gelatin if you are needing that. Just reduce the amount of honey*. And they are simple to make! [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.14"]

If you don’t have a thermometer, you can check by dripping the heated honey into a glass of cold water. When the candy forms a ball, it is ready!

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_image _builder_version="3.10.2" src="https://www.bewellclinic.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/GAPSFriendlyMarshmellowRecipe4.jpg" /][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.10.2"] Whisk the mixture using an electric mixer or stand mixer for about 10 minutes. When the mixture is thick and looks like marshmallow paste, it’s done! Put the marshmallow paste in a greased and parchment paper-lined glass 9x11 dish and allow to cool and dry for 24-36 hrs. Then cut up and serve. These marshmallows won't have exactly the same consistency (and won't roast over the fire quite the same) as store-bought marshmallows, but you can roast them for things like s'mores, and they are delicious!

Enjoy!

*As a general rule I don't like to heat honey, as some research has shown that heating it can turn the honey toxic. On the other hand, these marshmallows are a whole lot better than commercially available marshmallows, so I think as a treat they are great! I still recommend using raw honey for these recipes, you will be heating it much less than most non-raw honey is heated.
