thanks for sharing!
here s another option:
Quoted Text
by Maria Papove

2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (knox)
˝ cup cold water
1 1/2 cups honey
1/3 cup water
1 egg white
nut flour for covering

Soften gelatin in ˝ cup cold water.
In saucepan combine honey the 1/3 cup water and cook to soft ball stage. (You need a fairly large pot for this as it foams up a lot).
Remove from heat. Stir in gelatin to dissolve. Let cool for 10 or 15 minutes.
In separate bowl beat egg white to stiff peaks. Slowly add syrup beating on high speed of electric mixer till candy stands in soft peaks. (Be prepared as this takes a long time of beating at least it did for me.)
Pour onto plain brown paper or parchment paper.
Spread into a 12x10 inch rectangle. Let stand overnight.
Dust lightly with nut flour.
Turn over on another piece of paper (here I used brown paper cut from a paper bag)If you used the brown paper to put it on originally then moisten the brown paper slightly to remove from candy. I found the parchment paper pulled off nicely without the moistening.)
Cut in desired size pieces. Dust or dab the pieces lightly into the nut flour the marshmallows are quite sticky when cut and this takes away
the stickiness.

Don, I'm trying to talk myself into it!  My family have been "noticing" store marshmallows more and more.

Does anyone know of a vegetable sourced gelatin?

Marshmallows would still be an infrequent Neutral for me because of the honey, but at least it wouldn't be poison!

Joe, you could try agar flakes. If you're fairly sure you're not a nonnie they will be okay (agar is an avoid for all nonnies). They are tasteless and a good substitute for Knox or other gelatin.

After reading Peppermint Twist's "You might be a nonnie if" thread the other day...  I fit all catagories, so it may not be a good idea to tempt that...  At least until I get the test.

Thanks for the response!

Could you use agave nectar/syrup, vegetable glycerine, or another sweetener?  

The marshmallow recipe from the link uses light agave.  Yes, Papove's recipe uses quite alot of honey--1 1/2 cups.
