This is my first experience with marshmallows in particular and agar-agar in General. The result is very much! Is the agar-it's not scary! Marshmallows did on the anniversary of my mother. Guests were delighted! A husband and daughter are waiting for marshmallow, made exclusively for them, that would not share with anyone else!
I had a package of frozen pitted cherries weighing 300 grams. Cherry I completely defrosted on a sieve, the liquid glass and left exactly 200 grams of cherry. Fill the cherries with a tablespoon of sugar and put on fire. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.
Boiled cherries grind into a puree.
Of the total weight, measure 125 grams of puree and add 125 grams of sugar to it. Cook for 2 minutes and let cool.
Agar-agar fill with water and leave for 10 minutes. Then, on low heat, bring the agar to a boil and add to it 230 grams of sugar. Again bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove the resulting syrup from the heat.
Then I have everything happened quickly, so a photo made just the one left, right whisking continuously mass. So I apologize for the quality of the photos. In the cooled cherry puree, add half the protein and beat the mass until light and increase it in volume (1-2 minutes).
Continuing to whisk, add the second half of the protein. The mass will turn white noticeably and even increase in volume. Without stopping whipping, pour a thin stream of hot syrup with agar.
Recommends whipping to t 38-40 degrees. I'm a little this process delayed me, the thermometer showed 36 degrees.
Marshmallow mass using a pastry bag is deposited on a sheet of baking paper and leave for a day in a well-ventilated area. My husband could not resist-after about 6 hours marshmallow ate! The form of marshmallows holding up nicely!
At the end of the day, sprinkle the marshmallow with powdered sugar and combine the marshmallows in pairs.
