Matcha Green TeaMarshmallows
2 envelopes (2 tbsp.) gelatin
3/4 cup ice cold water
3/4 cup honey
1/4 tsp. salt
4 tsp. matcha green tea powder, mixed with 3 tbsp. hot water in a small bowl
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Chill a large mixing bowl and a balloon whisk in the freezer for a few minutes, or longer. Cook 3/4 cup of the water, honey, andsalt over medium heat, covered, for 3 minutes. Increase heat slightly to bring it to agentle boil and cook until it registers 200ºF on a candy thermometer.
While the syrup is cooking, sprinkle gelatin over the remaining 1/4 cup of water in thechilled bowl to soften the gelatin.
Pour the syrup slowly into the softened gelatin, whisking gently. When all the syrup ispoured in, increase your speed and mix vigourously. It will start frothing and soon become white, although it will still be thin. When it is completely opaque, add aspoonful of the mixed matcha and continue whisking as it gradually thickens.
