Another my great love is the tenderness and airiness of marshmallows... What else is missing in the period of flowering and awakening nature? I used to think that marshmallows and marmalade - it's soooo hard!!! And it is possible to prepare them only on an industrial scale in factories! But it turned out that there is nothing mega complicated... but you always know what sweets you can treat your favorite children! Come, I'll tell you all in great detail!
Take apples (2 large) and cut them into halves. Clean and remove the core. Then divide by 2 more, getting quarters. Send in the oven with a temperature of 160 degrees for 1 hour.
In principle, you can do it in the microwave (15 minutes), but then we do not evaporate unnecessary liquid and marshmallows can be loose in the end and not freeze! Therefore, I strongly recommend to bake apples for the right marshmallow!!!
10 grams of agar-agar pour 80 ml of water and leave to swell.
Cranberries can be used and frozen...
I have fresh berries. We blend it and pass the pulp through a strainer to get rid of the peel. We'll need 50 grams of puree!!!
Ready-made apples also blend to a state of uniform and smooth puree, pass through a strainer and measure 150 grams of net weight.
Take a large bowl and combine the puree of cranberries and apples, 200 grams of sugar and mix well.
Add half of the protein and start whipping with a mixer.
Meanwhile, put on the fire swollen agar-agar and bring to a sour condition. Fall asleep 220 grams of sugar and cook the syrup to 110 degrees (this is about 5 minutes of medium boiling)... The mass will bubble slightly-this is normal. When the spoon will last thread-remove from the fire.
Our fruit and berry mixture is whipped... it begins to brighten and increase in volume. Add the second half of our protein and continue whipping without stopping.
Add a thin stream of our syrup and continue to whisk for another 5-7 minutes. Mass becomes air and very much increases in volume (keep this in mind when choosing dishes for work).
Still warm spread the mass on two cooking bag with curly tips. This must be done to the mass did not thicken in a bowl, because agar-agar begins its work at 40 degrees!!!
On trays or cutting boards, laid with parchment, we put our marshmallows and leave at room temperature for 1 day, so that they dry!
Then powder with powdered sugar and can connect in pairs!
Our marshmallow is ready, you can start a festive tea party!
