    I have always wanted to make homemade marshmallows, have watched the process multiple times and find it facinating, but frankly I don't like them so I have never done it. Now seeing this recipe, I think I will do this for thanksgiving. Thanks for the recipe

    Glad to see that the recipe doesn't depend solely on the pumpkin beer for the pumpkin flavor as many of them would not bring enough to the recipe. If you used an Avery Rumpkin, you wouldn't need to add as much sugar, and I'd think the rum would be a great addition. But - don't heat the Rumpkin too much, could ignite :wink:

    Those look amazing. I'd love to try them, but I doubt I'll ever make them. I've never made candy, and that looks a bit much for a novice! Getting the temp right and then the consistency of the eggs then not making scrambled eggs seems like a lot of room for error for me. :wink:

    No fear from scrambling them. The state they are in with the mixer going it slowly cooks them and changes their texture.

    Marshmallows and mayonaisse were two things I was very surprised to learn were relatively easy to make at home. Something about them seems like they would require some vast industrial facility filled with questionable processes and ingredients.

    I've made mayonaisse, but I've never pulled the trigger on marshmallows. As with most things, adding beer has made it more attractive. I might give these a try this Thanksgiving. Thanks!
