National Candy Corn Day 2020 in United States

National Toasted Marshmallow Day 2019 in United States

Marshmallow

History of Marshmallow

Marshmallows come from the sweet sap of the ‘Mallow’ Plant that grows in salty marshes near large bodies of water and grow 2 to 4 feet high.
MARSH + MALLOW = MARSHMALLOW
The ancient Egyptians used the mallow root for making their candied delicacies for their Gods, Nobility and Pharaohs over 2000 years ago. Since it was a crime for anyone else to eat this sugarlike treat , children looked to honey and figs to cure their sweet tooth.
Egyptian marshmallows were a mixture of Mallow sap, honey, grains and baked into cakes. The Romans and the Greeks loved the Mallow Plant; they believed that brewed mixtures of the Mallow sap cured soar throats and pains . The sugar mixture was found among Hipppocrates medical treatments. During the 15th and 16th centuries marshmallow liquids were given as treatments for toothaches, coughs sore throats indigestion and diarrhea It was even believed to have been used as a love potion at this time.
It was the French during the 1800’s that changed the use of the mallow plant from mainly medicinal to more of a candy consumed by adults. French shop owners discovered that cooking and whipping marshmallow sap with egg whites and corn syrup created an easily moldable substance. This is where the marshmallow as we know it today was born!
Marshmallows were introduced and popularized in the United States in the early 1900s.
Roasting marshmallows…Heating a marshmallow until it browns causes malliard reaction which give the marshmallow a more complex flavor. Additionally, campfires are often hot enough to cause the sugars to caramelize which changes the texture and flavor.  Yum!!
