If you’re like me, this cooler weather isn’t quite the harbinger of summer I’ve been hoping for. None the less, I found a silver lining when I dropped in on Richard at the Daffodil Baking Company.
He has artisan marshmallows!
Richard told me that it doesn’t have to be autumn to roast marshmallows and he said that he “simply cannot abide the store-bought, mass-produced schlock that pass for marshmallows.”
But it’s Richard, so I thought maybe there might be a teensy bit of exaggeration in his statement – you know how he gets when talking about the quality ingredients for his baked good, right? But then I tasted them! Wow! There is definitely a richness to the artisan marshmallows that I haven’t tasted in the mass-produced ones.
So … as long as it doesn’t rain this evening, I’m planning on a fire in my chiminea and then I’ll roast some delectable marshmallows!
BTW: Richard says he won’t be carrying the artisan marshmallows all summer, but he will bring them back this fall in time for “bonfire weather.”
PS – Many thanks to everyone for your patience as all of us Daffodilians continue to regain our footing!
