[Comments] (7) : I tried making marshmallows with agar agar and it was a disaster. What went wrong? I tried again with gelatin and that too was a disaster, but not in an unsuccessful-marshmallows way; more like a third of the marshmallow mixture stuck to things like my hands and the kitchen, and wouldn't go into the pan.

Perhaps if I made marshmallows using John Agar as the thickening agent. Yes, that would surely work.

No, that might work but I wanted to make vegan marshmallows, and for that I can't use any gelatin at all.

The other thing I didn't try that might work is to heat the agar agar to bloom it instead of just dumping it in the water.

OR you could BUY marshamallows- 99cents a bag! Except they're not vegan.

All this talking about sugar has made me ... um, curious about the effect of sugar subsidies on our health.

Is agar agar your comedy alien sidekick?

"Agar-Agar Binks, you've ruined another pan of marshmallows!" "Sooo-rry."
