Homemade Strawberry Marshmallows (Zephyr)

Share

These Homemade Strawberry Marshmallows are also known as zephyrs. Zephyrs are a type of sweet like a cross between a marshmallow and a meringue. They look like a meringue, but they have the texture and consistency of marshmallows. Zephyrs get their cute name from the Greek god of light wind: Zephyrus. This is due to the light and airy texture of this sweet treat.

These marshmallows are made by beating a strawberry purée together with sugar, egg whites and agar-agar. Agar-agar is a gelling agent and unlike gelatin, it is suitable for vegetarians. This recipe is a great way to use up strawberries. These go down a treat at a summer party because they look like piped roses.

To make Homemade Strawberry Marshmallows, you will need the following ingredients:

So, how to make Homemade Strawberry Marshmallows?

Steps to make Homemade Strawberry Marshmallows (Zephyr)

1

Prepare a baking sheet

1

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set to one side.

2

Make strawberry puree

10

Place the strawberries and sugar and lemon juice in a pan and bring to a simmer. As the berries are simmering, mash them and continue to simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes.

3

Strain the strawberry puree

30

Strain the puree through a fine sieve into a bowl. You should get ½ cup of puree. Place the bowl over an ice bath and chill until it has cooled completely.

4

Mix puree and egg white

10

When the puree is cold, add it to the bowl of a stand mixer and use the whisk attachment to combine it with the egg white. Whisk for 8-10 min on high speed until stiff peaks start to form.

5

Make the agar-agar sauce

5

Meanwhile, mix water, agar-agar and sugar together in a pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and simmer for about 5 minutes, whisking constantly. Remove from heat when the syrup thickens.

6

Add agar-agar to the strawberry mixture

5

Turn the mixer down to the lowest speed and immediately, but gradually transfer the agar syrup to the strawberry mixture. Scrape down the mixer bowl and turn the heat back up to high speed. Beat for 2-3 more minutes until stiff peaks form.

7

Pipe the marshmallows

10

Fit a piping bag with a Wilton 1M large open star tip and transfer the strawberry mixture to the bag. Pipe evenly shaped roses onto the prepared baking sheet. Make sure the roses are evenly sized as you’ll need to sandwich them together once they set.

8

Rest

12h

Allow the piped marshmallows to set overnight, uncovered in a low humidity, draft free place at room temperature.

9

Sandwich together

5

When you remove the marshmallows from the parchment, they should be slightly sticky where they were not exposed to the air. Use this to sandwich pairs of marshmallows together.

10

Serve

2

Dust these zephyrs with powdered sugar before serving.
