Did you know that the marshmallow dates back to ancient Egypt where the marsh mallow's root sap was mixed with honey to produce this sweet treat?

No, I didn't know this. I had a friend in college who came from a place called Mallow-on-the-Marsh! Hugs, Valerie

Yvonne said...

No I had no idea. Wow. That's pretty interesting. Who would have thought that the gooey yumminess came from that???

No Sandra, another bit of information I have found out.
Have a good day.

Yvonne.

New to me. Mind you as far as I am concerned the marsh mallow's sap is safe.
That said I do enjoy the trivia snippets you give us - thank you.

Hi Sandra - surprisingly yes ... amazing how much our ancient relatives knew! Take care - Hilary

Sandra Cox said...

That's interesting! I'm assuming they had plenty of marsh mallows.

It's from Egypt? Wow!

CJ Kennedy said...

That's a fun fact. I wonder if those marshmallows were roasted?

Andrew said...

I am not sure I am now so keen on marshmallows. Maybe today they are just a chemical construction. I'll stick with them.

Sandra Cox said...

I like my marshmallows melted with rice krispies and peanut butter.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

How ironic. I have made my own before, but they were mostly just sugar and water. Good trivia to know.

Sandra Cox said...

Amazing indeed. When you think of the architecture and the herbs used for healing. It bogles the mind.

Sandra Cox said...

Yeah, that would be interesting to know.

Sandra Cox said...

Good question!

Sandra Cox said...

Hmm. Great question.

Whenever I see marshmallows, I think of making s'mores during the summer. :)

Hot guys said...

I literally had no idea, Sandra. 😃

Sandra Cox said...

Probably Tuesday. Neither Penny or Frank are happy right now. When they're not happy, Mama's not happy:(

Sandra Cox said...

Who'd a thought. Right?

Sandra Cox said...

Surprised me too:)

Sandra Cox said...

Sandra Cox said...

I was surprised to hear their origins. I guess the name says it all. Kudos to you for trying to make them.

Sandra Cox said...

Ooh. I love s'mores.

Sandra Cox said...

I didn't either till I stumbled across it:)

Lee said...

Well, there you go! I did not know that! :)

RO said...

This is such a yummy treat, but I sure never knew the origin. Thanks for that tasty tidbit, Super Sandra! Hugs, RO

Sandra Cox said...

You aren't alone:)

"Tasty tidbit." I like it!
Stay well, Rockin Ro.
