Homemade Marshmallows

One of the things I would never have thought of making at home is a marshmallow. It comes from a bag, it looks kind of artificial, how could it be made anywhere other than in a factory? Or worse, a laboratory?
But I recently read about homemade marshmallows (in her Bon Appetit article, Molly Wizenberg has the same factory comment), helped make some homemade marshmallow fluff, and yesterday a coworker brought in homemade marshmallows. They taste fresh, not artificial, don't look factory made and yet don't look homemade at all.
Here's the article in Bon Appetit: www.bonappetit.com/magazine/2008/07/cooking_life_fluff_piece as well as the recipe: http://www.bonappetit.com/magazine/2008/07/homemade_marshmallows

  1. I am not a fan of marshmallow's myself, but found that making them at home makes quite a difference. I made a marshmallow topping for a smore's pie and it completely changed my view of marshmallows... althought it could have something to do with the graham cracker crust and chocolate.
