Homemade Boysenberry Marshmallow


Now, I've finally come to my homemade marshmallow. This has been in my list to do for such a long long time. I was in between go ahead to give it a try or just keeping this for a little while longer. Frankly, I have no confidence at all. I've no idea what got into me and I finally did this. It's a celebration alright!

You must be wondering where did I found those boysenberries! Well, I actually bought the frozen boysenberry 2 years ago at Cold Storage. And the expiring date is on year 2012. Yeap, and this is the right timing for it. :o)

Ingredients : (recipe adapted from here)
100ml boysenberry puree
3 tbsp gelatine
100ml water
100ml homemade syrup (not golden syrup)/corn syrup
1-1/2 cup sugar
70gm egg white
* dusting : 1/2 cup icing sugar + 1/2 cornstarch

Method :
(1) combine gelatine and boysenberry puree together, let it stand for 20mins or untill totally dissolved.
(2) stir together sugar, water and syrup into a saucepan and let them boiled untill sugar is totally dissolved, roughly about 15mins.
(3) remove hot syrup from heat and slowly pour it into the gelatine whisking along on high speed.


(4) continue beating the mixture for at least 10-15mins, the mixture should be double in volume at this point.
(5) then in another bowl, whisk egg whites untill foamy and stiff.
(6) now, combine the gelatine mixture and egg white, and continue on beating for 5 more mins.

(7) stop beating the mixture once it's thick enough to spread over the tray.
(remember to brush a 9x13" tray with butter or oil before placing in the marshmallow batter.)


(8) keep the mixture chiledl untill set before slicing it.
(mine is a bit sticky at the bottom due to improper spread of oil)

(9) finally, slice & dust the marshmallow with sugar powder mixture to prevent from sticking together.

These babies are really bouncy, not dense! Tasted & tested. Great texture! Probably, a little soft. I will try to reduce the egg white to 40gm next time. See, if there's a different. For local bakers, please do keep your homemade marshmallow to places as lowest temperature as possible to maintain the quality. So, enjoy & have fun guys!

When we visited Nebraska, we always went to Knots Berry Farms where Boysenberry candy, pancakes, syrup annd pie were introduced to me. They were the size of my thumb and the berries were better tasting than anything else I have ever had... these are so intriguing to me.. the taste must be light and subtle with my fav flavor! nice job!

I love boysenberries, and boysenberry jam is one of my favorites. Someone once said to me oh, that's a Michigan thing...(I didn't know that) :D I saw a video on making marshmallows with agave nector and thought I would like to try that, but my daughter doesn't like marshmallows. I never thought to make flavored marshmallows...I would love these and who cares if nobody else in my family does...more for me! haha!

Indie.Tea said...

OOo, those sound really delicious. And what a creative flavor for marshmallows.

Zoe said...

These marshmallows are fantastic all for the fact that there is no artificial colour in them!

I'm always a big fan of yours when it comes to your cooking with all natural ingredients!

divya said...

Blackswan said...

Kristy, you're indeed a talented cook! Boysenberries are new to me too. Those colours are enough to drive me crazy. Ok, enough said. Send some over pleeeeeeese!

I specifically remember the first time I came to know about boysenberries was when I just relocated to States. There's one occasion when I went hiking with some friends, we came across this tall spiky bush and it was covered with this dark purplish berries. Our friends said it's boysenberries and we all started tasting them! Although a little on the sourish side, it was very tasty and juicy! Love that soft and squishy boysenberry marshmallow you made! The colour is just so sweet! Thanks for the recipe and the memories! ;)
