REVIEW: recipe rating
Since this recipe is so ambiguous, I read lots of other marshmallow recipes before trying it. Note I made a half batch, as well, so timing might be a little different than for a full batch.
Most recipes called for heating the sugars past 250, to hard ball stage. I do not have a candy thermometer, but getting to 220 took about 1 minute of boiling, and I counted an additional 30 seconds for good measure.
Most recipes also required a 12-15 min. beating time. At 6 min. on high with a mixmaster it was nearly too thick to continue, so we stopped. At this stage, it was nearly cool.
The result after cooling: Texture remarkably like storebought marshmallows. I'm impressed. We avoid sugar, and didn't have any coconut, so we ground up puffed kamut cereal and rolled them in that flour.
Finally, although we made a half recipe, when I cut squares similar in size to commercial marshmallows, I got 18. Much more than the "10" for a full recipe, as listed.

I think this recipe has a lot of potential. It just needs to be more specific. It says beat until slightly thick. That is very vague. It should be thick, creamy and fluffy and it should be almost white. You have to beat it at a high speed for a while about 10-15 mins to get the right consistency. Vanilla is listed in the ingredients, but it never says when to add it. Coconut is not mentioned in the ingredient list, but the recipe says to add it. It should be noted whether coconut is a necessary ingredient or optional. Finally,more information needed to be included as to what kind of pan. I suggest a deeper, smaller pan rather than a shallow pan.

I didn't see a time for beating the marshmallows. A good recipe that I lost instructed to beat with a mixer for 15 minutes. It did take the entire 15 minutes!
