Marshmallows on NPR

NPR ran a short segment today about toasting marshmallows: hold them over the coals to get radiant heat, watch them puff up as the air bubbles inside expand, and don't catch them on fire because they burn so very well (their composition of C, H, and O makes them really good fuel). And here's a segment I missed when it aired: a recipe from Make the Bread, Buy the Butterhow to make your own marshmallows at home. My husband has made these before with a recipe from the Cooking for Engineers website. Put on a Trader Joes' graham cracker and melt with good chocolate, and you'll have the best S'more you've ever tasted.
