To make the marshmallow filling
- ‘Bloom’ the gut-loving gelatin by stirring it into 1/3 cup of COLD water until it dissolves.
- Allow to sit for 5 minutes – it will become firm like a rubber ball.
- Meanwhile, combine the rice malt syrup, vanilla and salt in a saucepan with 1 cup of water and bring to the boil.
- Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring constantly, for 8 minutes.
- Turn off the heat, add the gelatin blob to the mixture and stir to dissolve.
- Using a stick blender, blitz until it thickens slightly (or transfer to a high-powdered blender to cut time). It might be easy to let this cool a little beforehand.
- Pour the marshmallow over the cooled jam layer.
- Now rub your hands in coconut oil and use your fingers to smooth the surface.
- Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until set.
