How to Make Marshmallows

1. Sprinkle gelatine over a cup of water.
2. Sprinkle half the Icing sugar mixture over the greased tray.
3. Grease a deep saucepan and add the sugar, corn syrup and water in it. Cook over low heat, stirring till sugar dissolves. Cover and bring to a boil.
4. Uncover and cook without stirring, till it reaches a hard ball consistency--drop a little syrup into cold water and it should firm up immediately.
5. Take off the heat and pour over gelatine, beating all the time with a beater, till fluffy and light. Add vanilla and pour mixture into prepared tray. Refrigerate over night.
6. Sprinkle rest of icing sugar mixture over, turn over on to a board and cut into cubes.
7. Dry for 2-3 hours and store.
