I make homemade marshmallows frequently and they are TO DIE FOR! easy and fabulous. Here's the recipe:
2 ½ tablespoons unflavored gelatin
1 c. water, divided, plus 1 tablespoon
1 ½ cups sugar
1 c. light corn syrup
¼ tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Lightly coat an 11 x 14-inch pan (at least 2 inches deep) w/ cooking spray. Heavily dust the pan w/ powdered sugar, then set aside. [you can use an 8-inch square pan also for thicker marshmallows]
In the bowl of a stand mixer, stir together the gelatin and ½ cup of the water. Let stand 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a heavy 2 – qt. saucepan, combine the remaining ½ c. water, sugar, corn syrup and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, over low- to medium-low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
Increase heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil, stirring often. Clip a candy thermometer to side of pan.
Reduce heat to medium, and boil at a moderate, steady rate, stirring frequently until the thermometer registers 230 degrees, about 15 minutes.
Watch carefully to prevent mixture from boiling over. If necessary, reduce heat to medium-low.
With the stand mixer (with whisk attachment), on low- to medium-low, slowly pour the hot sugar mixture into the gelatin mixture. Increase mixer to high, and beat 15 minutes. Mixture should be thick, white and nearly tripled in volume.
Add the vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of water and beat until combined.
Spoon the mixture (it will be very sticky) onto the prepared pan. Let stand, uncovered, overnight.
Loosen mixture from pan by running a knife around the edges.
Invert onto a cutting board dusted with powdered sugar. With a large knife, cut the block of marshmallow into 1-inch squares, and tumble with powdered sugar.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.
Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.
In answer to my prayer, "Lord Please Heal My Broken Body". May 2007 Celiac antibody test positive
