Just Jot It January! http://lindaghill.com/2015/01/01/just-jot-it-january-pingback-post-and-rules/ Do it now!
Wellll…the results are in. My voting group included myself and my husband, my French class, and two of my other friends. Here are the numbers. Y’all can do the ‘rithmetic.
Guimauve “A” = 4 votes (the recipe without egg whites)
Guimauve “B” = 2 votes (the recipe with egg whites)
Guimauve “C” = 4 votes (the “gourmet” ones from Whole Foods)
So, I guess that means that my first attempt at guimauve cookery has yielded results equal to the guys who have a contract with a major Natural Grocery Chain and who get to charge $5 for a small box of a dozen or so marshmallows. I’d say that’s not too shabby. I will continue with the recipe book 🙂
As an aside, everyone liked the ones that I coated with chocolate. Most of these were the “B” variety, which goes to show that chocolate makes everything better. I ended up coating them in chocolate because I found that (at least for my first attempt) the egg-white ones came out a bit too moist. Or, as my prof said, “elles sont moins sèches.” (It seems like it’s more common to use “less” in a comparative sentence in French, rather than “more” or “too” like I did there in English. I don’t know why?)
In any case, I declare that home-made marshmallows are totally possible and not too difficult if you have a bit of spare time!
à bientôt, chers lecteurs!
