Recipe #1: I had see in my results of making my marshmallows that all three recipes had different things about them. Recipe #1; as we were preparing the gelatin it was very thick and was like it was a few couple of blocks. when the mixture was in the pan the temperature was rising like as fast as a turtle on a leisurely morning walk (very very slowly).
