So, Vegetarian Marshmallows. Can they be done well?
I told a friend that I would make anything for her birthday that she wanted. She chose vegetarian marshmallows. Not being a vegetarian, I had no idea how to approach this, and so far an internet search has revealed that 1) Agar-agar is a great alternative to animal-based gelatine. 2) No, it totally isn't, especially in marshmallows. 3) But there's this stuff called Emes Kosher Gel that totally works! 4) Except it was revealed that their gelatine had animal products in it, and a bunch of vegan candymakers almost went out of business. Back at square one.
I'm lost. Any ideas?
