  1. Ahh…marshmallow cream and peanut butter sandwiches. Divine! The marshmallow plant was also used medicinally. Its history dates waaaaay back to the Ancient Egyptians.

  2. The “marsh mallow” was commonly been used medicinally and in candy making for centuries. The plants were imported by the colonists and were an important herb in their gardens. I’m not sure when the mallow plant was removed from the candy making, but I suspect it was about the time the jars of fluff appeared! I’ll have to do some research.

  3. I make Ina Garten’s homemade recipe for marshmallows, so incredibly yummy, and not too involved, and the only change is dusting mine w/cocoa instead of 10X. Now can’t go back to the jar ; ) Would love to see the ingredients list on Miss Curtis’s recipe, though. : )

  4. I was never a fan of the fluff… too sweet and messy. I preferred the actual jumbo marshmallow appropriate for roasting. Got into lots of trouble as a kid for roasting the marshmallows over a candle. Had been doing it for a week or so (with my sisters) at the kitchen table. It made a soot spot on the white ceiling!! Oops!

  5. One time I sent a jar of marshmallow creme to my friend in Australia and it was seized by Australian Customs. They SAID it was because it contained egg products which weren’t allowed into the country, but we were both convinced the Customs agents just wanted some delicious fluffernutter sandwiches.
