Kitchen Tip: How to Store Marshmallows
Have you ever taken a bag of marshmallows out of your pantry or cabinet, only to find they were like little hard rocks? Do you wonder what is the right way to store marshmallows so they don’t get hard? You’re not the only one! While marshmallows aren’t food items most people stockpile, it can be frustrating to find them hardened when you do need to use them for a recipe.
Problem: “Marshmallows are difficult to keep from hardening, even with the bag unopened. How should I store marshmallows to preserve the freshness?”
Solution: The proper way to store marshmallows to preserve their freshness and soft spongy texture is to keep them in the freezer. When you are ready to use them, remove from the freezer and let them thaw out at room temperature. After they have thawed, they’ll be just the same way that you bought them – soft!
