Note:

  1. You can use any kind of juice you like.
  2. This recipe only can be made by gelatin. Agar doesn’t suit this recipe.
  3. Store the marshmallows in an airtight container. Normally you don’t need to store in the fridge. But if your country has a warm and wet climate, I suggest storing it in the fridge.
