i really bought way too many blood oranges to know what to even do with them! i still have 4 left and i’m completely clueless on how to use them. you have any suggestions, please leave a comment!
in other news, since it’s officially summer i’ve decided to do a test run on a project i’ve been wanting to do for a very long time. it involves s’mores (ironically something that i don’t like eating) in fun different flavors and combinations. if you are in the minneapolis, minnesota area or even know me from home please take a peak at the list of flavor combinations which i will be posting up on my facebook page!
here’s a sneak peak at the unicorn s’more, which i’m super excited about!
blood orange marshmallows
makes approximately 18 marshmallows
2 tbsp unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup blood orange juice (or regular)
1 tsp blood orange zest
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
powdered sugar for dusting
place the blood orange juice, zest, vanilla and gelatin in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and let sit until the gelatin blooms. in the mean time place the sugar, corn syrup, salt and water in a small pot with a candy thermometer. put over high heat and bring to a boil until it reaches 240 degrees, or softball stage. turn the mixer on low speed and slowly pour the hot sugar into the gelatin mixture. increase the speed and whip until the bottom of the bowl is cool to the touch and the mixture is light and fluffy. dust the bottom of a pan with powdered sugar (you can also use non-stick spray or wax paper) and then pour the marshmallow into the pan. put more powdered sugar on top and then let sit until the marshmallow is set, preferably overnight. cut into pieces and enjoy.
