Whitney Miller's agave marshmallow recipe

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

You can get a cooking lesson from an award winning chef right here in South Mississippi.

Whitney Miller, cookbook author and winning TV chef will share her knowledge at Lynn Meadows Discovery Center Tuesday night, November 6.

She decided to make a quick stop at the 4 o'clock show kitchen first to make her agave marshmallows.

Agave Marshmallows

1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch

2 envelopes unflavored gelatin

¼ teaspoon stevia powder

¾ cup light agave nectar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 

Lightly coat the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch pan with cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. Sift enough cornstarch over the bottom of the pan to lightly but evenly coat.

Sprinkle the gelatin over ½ cup cold water in a small saucepan. Stir over low heat until dissolved. Add the stevia, agave, and salt. Mix well, then heat over medium-high heat until it almost comes to boil.  

Pour the warm syrup into the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on high speed until the mixture has doubled in volume and forms stiff peaks, about 15 minutes. Beat in the vanilla.  

Scrape the marshmallow cream into the prepared pan and spread with a damp rubber spatula. Let stand, uncovered, until set, at least 3 hours.  

To make cubes, dip a knife in hot water and cut the marshmallow into 2-inch cubes.

Makes about 50 marshmallows.
