Personal Notes:
It just wasn’t Christmas until Mom made her home made Marshmallows! Mom had lost her original recipe, so she had me write to Knox Gelatin. The company found the recipe in their archives and sent it to us. Mom took 1st place in "Misc." category of Augusta Gazette's 1983 Cookbook. I also entered this in the Cow Town Country Fair, taking 1st place in candies for the recipe's uniqueness. None of the judges had ever heard of “homemade” marshmallows!
