Delicate, soft, fragrant apple marshmallows are ideal as a dessert for a festive tea party. Sweet lovers should appreciate homemade marshmallows. In our family, apple puree marshmallows disappear almost immediately. Surprisingly simple and quick to prepare, marshmallows make you smile when you see it and is a win-win option for sweets for children. I often cook delicious marshmallows at home: on holidays and, sometimes, on weekends.
Here's a step-by-step recipe for making incredibly delicious home-made marshmallows.
- homemade applesauce - 150 grams;
- sugar - 130 grams;
- cinnamon - 0.25 teaspoon;
- one chicken protein (egg 1C).
- sugar - 170 grams;
- water - 100 milliliters;
- agar-agar - 6 grams;
- invert (corn, glucose) syrup - 80 grams.
Apple Marshmallow. Step by step recipe
- To get 150 grams of applesauce, it takes me about 350-400 grams of fresh peeled apples.
Tip. There are two ways to make mashed potatoes for marshmallows:
- cut the apples in half, cut the core, put on a plate (or baking sheet), bake in the oven (microwave) until soft, then remove the pulp, grind it with a blender and wipe through a sieve;
- I like the second method more: peel the apples, remove the core, cut into small pieces, transfer to a saucepan, add a little water, boil the apples until thick mashed potatoes, and then wipe through a sieve.
Thus, we can prepare any fruit or berry puree, but the most important thing is that it should be boiled very well. If you are going to make mashed potatoes from frozen berries, then you do not need to add water.
- Transfer 150 grams of the finished apple puree into a small saucepan, add 130 grams of sugar, a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon, mix well and heat the puree until the sugar is completely dissolved (this can be done in the microwave).
- We send the finished mashed potatoes to the refrigerator until they cool completely (very good when the mashed potatoes stand in the refrigerator at night).
- In one chicken egg, we separate the protein from the yolk (for the preparation of homemade marshmallows we will use only protein).
- Transfer the prepared apple cold puree to a bowl for whipping, add one cold protein and beat with a mixer at minimum speed, gradually increasing the speed to maximum. Beat the mashed potatoes with protein until solid peaks.
Beating the mashed potatoes with protein is very important: only then will the finished marshmallow keep its shape and will not spread. Therefore, pay special attention to this moment.
- For syrup we mix: water, agar-agar (we do not pre-soak agar), sugar, invert syrup (the recipe for its preparation is on our site “I like to cook”). Cook the syrup with constant stirring over medium heat and, when it boils, then bring to a temperature of 110 degrees.
During cooking, I often notice visually when agar can be replaced with gelatin. But during the preparation of marshmallows this can not be done.
- With constant beating in a thin stream, pour the ready-made syrup into mashed potatoes (it is desirable that the syrup does not fall on the whisk of the mixer). Beat until the mass becomes thick and begins to keep in shape.
By the way, it’s also not worth whipping for a very long time: because the agar stabilizes already at a temperature of 40 degrees and the mass can freeze in a bowl.
- We transfer the finished thick mass into a pastry bag.
- We sit the marshmallows on a silicone mat.
I prefer to use such a nozzle for planting marshmallows: an open star with a diameter of 1-2 centimeters.
- Marshmallows from applesauce on the mat leave at room temperature for 8-12 hours to stabilize and dry.
- After this time, disconnect the halves of the marshmallows from the mat, connect them together and roll the finished marshmallows in icing sugar.
- You can store home-made apple marshmallows in closed containers or bags for about a week.
Tempting appetizing, delicious and incredibly soft apple puree marshmallows, cooked at home, will appeal to everyone: small to large. And our step by step recipe will help you make such a sweet easy and simple.
