Mike Said:hi, does anyone have a marshmallow recipe using marshmallow root powder instead of gelatine?

Wilma Said:Best Gelatine Mold (Jello) recipe for adults?
We Answered:1 pt vanilla ice cream, 1 pkg red or green jello. Melt the ice cream to room temperature (don't put it in the microwave) -- takes about 3 hours. Mix the jello with 1 cup of hot water, add the melted ice cream. You can add sliced bananas or some crushed walnuts or pecans. Place your mold in the fridge for 5-6 hours. Yum.... we call it Bavarian Cream and it is delicious
Luis Said:What effect will gelatine have on chocolate mousse?
We Answered:The gelatin stabilizes the mousse so it stays light and fluffy longer. If you just used whipped cream for the "lift", it would deflate in a matter of hours to chocolate pudding. The gelatin gets firm and holds the air bubbles so it stays nice and light and yummy.
We've been eating gelatin for years. Yes, gelatin comes from cows bones through a process in which the bones are chemically treated to release the gelatin. There are other products which have similar characteristics if the animal bones thing bothers you. But gelatin is in many, many foods; foods you don't even suspect.

1 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Cup Chunk-style Peanut Butter
1 Cup mixed Wild Bird Seed
1 Cup Sunflower Seed

here is another fun one to make
birdseed (your choice)
Lay out a newspaper on a table or countertop and pour birdseed it. Spread peanut butter all over the pine cones and roll them in the birdseed. Tie a piece of ribbon or string to the top of each cone and hang them on tree branches. The birds will pick them clean!
