When I tripled my basic marshmallow recipe the other day, I think I'd need a industrial mixer for it to hold all of the fluffy-ness. Yes, it nearly over-flowed our KitchenAid (which is big), but I did not get a picture of that.
Boiling sugar, candy making, is very interesting. So many things to learn it seems like, you just have to get down to the science of it - which is fun, and brings many sweet things to my family ;). Bring sugar to a certain temperature, it makes divinity, another temperature nougat, another temperature marshmallows, the list goes on. So, does that mean I can count candy making in my school as science? That's how homeschooling is so practical.
