S'mores - Seattle Style

The hubby & I had a BBQ this Memorial Day weekend. We decided to make homemade marshmallows and graham crackers for s'mores on our fire pit. We followed the directions from jam it, pickle it, cure it & other cooking projects by Karen Solomon. If you like to try new things in your kitchen, this book is for you. I have to admit, I was a little intimidated at the idea of making my own marshmallows, but they were surprisingly easy to do - albeit quite messy. Just like a good s'more.

The marshmallows setting in the pan. I didn't get any cooking pics because the process happens pretty fast.


The hubby helping to get them out of the pan. Then you cut into squares and dip in powdered sugar.

Voila! Homemade marshmallows!


Homemade graham crackers. Again, didn't get any cooking pics, it was pretty busy in our kitchen!


The roasting of mallows. Note the jeans and fleece in the pic, yes, this is a BBQ in Seattle. A little cold weather and rain does not stop us! There were homemade mallows to be roasted people!


Get ready for it...


Ooey, gooey, s'mores goodness!

You must be a better mallow maker than I am because my mallows didn't work at all over the fire. It was a giant mess! Oh well. I'm glad it worked for you and I think it's awesome that you make the graham crackers.

Gah! I am drooling on my computer, those look WONDERFUL! I may have to track down that book...

On second thought, as much as I like s'mores, maybe I shouldn't.

Yum!
