Marshmallow

Today I woke up soooo early and found out that my head is lighter and my throat is better, Alhamdulillah :) I am left with only a slight cough and phlegm but it's alright I can easily suck it in back from the nose back to the throat *I guess it is where it goes* Man it sounds disgusting when it is written in details :"(

By the way, last week, before I went off to campus, I managed to try a recipe from Joy of Baking.

Homemade Marshmallows:

1 cup (240 ml) cold water, divided
3 - 1/4 ounce envelopes (21 grams) unflavored gelatin
2 cups (400 grams) granulated white sugar
1 cup (240 ml) light corn (or golden) syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Garnish:
3-4 cups (350-460 grams) confectioners' (powdered or icing) sugar, sifted
And let me tell you this, homemade marshmallow tasted so so much better than the store-bought ones. It is much more fluffier and less sweeter. And as usual, I did lessen the sugar a bit. If I'm not mistaken I reduce half of it to 1 cup only. And I use Kijang brand Gelatine. 

I've been wanting to try marshmallow for ages but I am so doubtful of the gelatine halal-ness. At last I found this Halal directory by Jakim and it is stated here that Kijang Gelatine is halal! :D Thank you Jakim for the wonderful effort!
