    Great shots, everyone! As always, good company makes the trip in any weather.
    Looks like I missed a super fun hang

    Thanks!

    So I figured after two hangs I better get on here -- It's Sarah.

    Thanks to Gary for organizing (and giving Jon and I a lift). It was lovely seeing so many new faces and reconnecting with those of you I met this summer.

    And for anyone interested in tackling marshmallows at home here is my favorite variation. To make plain vanilla like you had at the hang just sub water for the all of the chamomile tea in the recipe.

    Vanilla Chamomile Marshmallows

    • 3/4 cup water
    • 1/4 cup chamomile flowers
    • 1 tablespoon gelatin
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • Pinch cream of tartar
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

    1. To brew chamomile tea, bring water to a boil in a small pot. Remove from heat and add chamomile flowers. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes. Strain flowers from the tea and chill in the refrigerator until liquid is cool.

    2. Pour 1/4 cup of chilled chamomile tea into the bowl of a stand mixer. Sprinkle gelatin over the tea and let sit for 10 minutes.

    3. Combine sugar, 3 tablespoons chamomile tea, honey and cream of tartar in a pot. Over medium heat, gently stir the mixture until sugar dissolves. Continue cooking sugar mixture, without stirring, until it reaches 234 degrees on a candy thermometer.

    4. Immediately turn on the stand mixer to its lowest setting while pouring a thin stream of hot sugar mixture into the center of the bowl. When all the sugar is poured, turn the mixer on high and let run for 10 minutes. It should double in volume.

    5. Line an 8-inch by 8-inch pan with parchment, spray with cooking oil.

    6. One minute before removing the marshmallow from the mixer, add vanilla extract. Scoop the marshmallow into the prepared pan using a buttered spatula and pat down with buttered hands to create a smooth surface. Let cure for at least 4 hours.

    7. Turn out the marshmallow sheet onto a surface sprinkled with combined confectioners’ sugar and cornstarch. Using a knife dipped in hot water, cut 1-inch strips vertically through the sheet. Continuously dipping the knife when sticky, cut the strips into 1-inch cubes. Coat each cube in the sugar-cornstarch mixture, shaking off excess. Chamomile Vanilla Marshmallows keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

    Thanks all & a few pics

    Hey, I very much enjoyed this hang, new faces and familiar ones, great raffle, gift exchange, food, all varieties of brewed beverages, scenery, and perhaps most importantly, great company. Thanks to all! (except Darren who slept on the snow, like a dog, on purpose.)
